Viagra Saves Baby's Life

London (WVLT) - Say what you will about Viagra, but for one family in England it's proved to be a life saving drug.

Lewis Goodfellow was born premature back in August.

He weighed just one pound, eight ounces.

One of his lungs had failed and he was unable to get enough oxygen into his bloodstream.

His parents had actually started making funeral plans when doctors gave little Lewis Viagra.

The drug opened up the baby's blood vessels and Lewis is now at home with his parents.
