At 10 years old, Miracle Moore is already making headlines for helping her mom deliver a baby at home.
On Oct. 22, Miracle’s mother, Viola Fair, 30, went into labor at home in Jennings, Missouri, the baby was on its way but it was just her and her daughter at home.
The fourth grader dialed 911 and spoke to dispatcher Scott Stranghoener. She quickly gave a situation report on an 11-minute call.
Though the paramedics were en route, Miracle began repeating Stranghoener’s instructions to her mom: “Don’t sit on the toilet” and “Mama, they said lay on your back in the center of the bed or on the floor.”
“She’s crying!” Miracle told Stranghoener.
When Fair had trouble lying down as instructed, Stranghoener told Miracle to grab towels or blankets and place them underneath Fair’s body.
She also unlocked the front door so emergency responders could enter the home, and she comforted her mom, whose screams of pain are heard over the recording.
