What if your brother helped bring you into this world?
Jayden Fontenot is the hero without a costume or cape. This young man literally saved his mom and baby brother’s lives. Bravery doesn’t always require a mask.
This young man stayed calm and collected during the ordeal.
Ashley was 34 weeks pregnant when she woke up one Friday morning to go to the bathroom.
She was in a rush to pee like with all pregnant women but as she was sitting for the deed, her water broke. The baby’s feet were hanging out!
Her fiance had just left for work.
The only people at home were her kids. An 11-month-old daughter and her 10-year-old son. Ashley says,
“The scariest thing I’ve ever been through in my life.”
She called out for Jayden who ran to the bathroom only to see his mom and his unborn brother’s feet in full view.
Ashley says it didn’t look like her baby was breathing. In fact, the feet were purple. Jayden ran to his grandma’s where they called the police.
Where most people would panic or freak out, Jayden acted on instinct.
Jayden found his mother on the floor getting ready to deliver when he got back.
Ashley says he took a deep breath and asked her to tell him what he needed to do and he would do it. What a lad.
No fear for this kid.
He was really brave. Ashley told him that they needed to get his brother out as fast as possible because he couldn’t breathe. Jayden was not going to lose them.
He helped by gently pulling on his brother’s leg as Ashley pushed with what remaining strength she had.
They kept at it until the baby came out. His brother wasn’t breathing.
Jayden ran to get a nasal aspirator and help clear his brother’s airways.
Emergency medical responders finally arrived helping get mom and baby to the hospital.
Kelsey Richard, Jayden’s stepdad, found out about the ordeal when Ashley and baby were already in the hospital.
It’s so impressive even viewers were amazed,
“Angels come in all shapes and sizes that young boy right there is an angel.”
Not everyone would have reacted the way this brave young man did. He relied on instinct, using his head instead of panicking to make sure his mom and baby brother would both make it. And at ten years old too!
The dude is a hero!
Jayden displayed exceptional bravery and poise in handling a situation so serious. Two lives depended on it. This could be the start of a very promising medical career. Or of a caped crusader.
His baby brother is yet to hear the story of how Jayden helped bring him in to this world.
If he needs someone to look up to, it’s big brother Jayden.
