A 10-year-old girl came to the rescue of her aunt and cousin earlier this week thanks to her adoration for baby dolls.
Chloe Carrion was home alone with her aunt in Fairfax, Virginia when she heard her relative scream from the bathroom and say that she had just given birth to a baby.
At first, Chloe didn’t believe her. Her aunt had been keeping her pregnancy a secret from the family because she was scared and overwhelmed. When she was at home with her niece, she had gone to the bathroom for stomach pain only to find out that she was in labor. As she was sitting on the toilet, she suddenly gave birth.
Chloe finally ran to join her aunt in the bathroom. Her aunt, who was suffering from blood loss, handed Chloe the baby and climbed into the bathtub to lie down because she had lost a lot of blood. Then, she fell down and passed out unconscious.
The 10-year-old niece immediately called 911 before calling her mother and alerting her to the situation.
Chloe then remembered a series of YouTube videos that she had watched about taking care of baby dolls, so she decided to use the techniques taught in the video to care for her newborn cousin.
She cleaned up the baby, swaddled him, and even cut the umbilical cord with the help of a 911 dispatcher’s coaching.
By the time paramedics arrived alongside Chloe’s mother, the 10-year-old was in control of the situation.
“Chloe was just standing at the front door with the baby swaddled, and she was rocking him back and forth,” her mother told WJLA. “I’m very proud of her. She was so brave. Even as an adult, I don’t think I could have done what she did.”
Chloe’s aunt, who was taken to the hospital after the incident, has every intention of raising the baby after its sudden arrival. She even let Chloe name the little baby boy Isaac.
