Miracle number 29 from the Register of New Miracles happened with Yousef Bassam Mari, born in Qab Elias-Lebanon in 2004. His father is Sunni Muslim; his mother is Christian, and her name is Rola Mahrout. The child is in the custody of his mother due to the parents' divorce.
Yousef had a stomach infection, so his mother admitted him to Tal Shiha Hospital in Zahle-Lebanon. There the treating doctor injected him with a contrast dye to reveal the source of the infection in his stomach. Due to medical error, the doctor did not give him water after the injection, so his kidneys stopped functioning and became solidified, so that even dialysis did not help him. Yousef was brought into the care room, and in turn, the mother called the Minister of Health, informing him that there was a medical error, so that the doctor would assume responsibility.
