A 10-year-old boy named Jayden from Louisiana is being hailed as a hero after he helped his mom deliver his baby brother at home. He may have even saved her life—and that of his new sibling.
"When he got to the bathroom, he took a deep breath, and he was like, 'Ok, mom, tell me what I need to do, and I'm going to do it,'" she told the local news, adding, "He didn't even look scared, he looked calm, just brave. So I said, I'm just going to tell you what to do and just do it. We got to get your brother out as fast as possible because he's breeched and he can't breathe right now."
Before paramedics had even arrived, Jayden helped his mama safely deliver the baby, and as doctors say, saved both his and her life. Indeed, had Jayden not been there, his mom and baby brother may not have survived the harrowing birth. Meanwhile, Moreau's new son is still in the hospital, but is expected to come home soon.
So Jayden, is a job in the medical field in your future? We think you'd make a great doctor one day!
