The brave actions of 10-year-old Jayden Fontenot saved the lives of his mother and unborn brother.
Jayden found his mom bleeding out in the bathroom of their home in Sulphur, Louisiana after she unexpectedly went into early labour. The image of his younger brother's feet dangling out was all the confidence he needed as he stepped up to help his mom deliver his sibling.
The breached nature of the birth made time a privilege that the family could not afford. It was clear by the blue colour of his brother's legs that he was not breathing and most likely would not survive for much longer.
A YouTube video posted by KPRC revealed that the brave actions of Jayden didn't stop after his brother was born. Realising that his brother still was not breathing, he quickly grabbed a nasal aspirator and saved the boy's life.
