This is a pretty extraordinary story. An uborn baby saved the life of his father.
The Stir reports:
According to Sara McDonald, who is 7 1/2 months pregnant, her husband, Thomas, wouldn’t be here today if her baby hadn’t given her a very powerful sign that something was wrong — a big kick. She says that kick from her baby, Cameron, jolted her out of a deep sleep where she found her husband unresponsive.
She told the station he didn’t have a heartbeat and that he was “purple from the waist up.” She was, understandably, terrified and called police after trying to perform CPR herself. Officers say they weren’t sure he would make it, but fortunately he did, and he’s going to be fine.
McDonald has no doubt that her unborn son was responsible.
It’s like my baby saved my husband’s life. And he’s not even here yet and he saved his dad’s life. It’s an amazing feeling and I don’t think anyone else can say that.
How cool is that? The only problem is that this kind of thing seriously upsets the balance of power in that family. If that kid asks for anything from his Dad, what can Dad say? The kid’s got the trump card of all trump cards. “Dad, I saved your life and you won’t even give me an IPod?!!!!!”
