Mother throws her 12-day-old baby out of the second-story bedroom in a carseat; it was the last thing she did in her life

It’s amazing how being a mother can shape your natural instincts. Your awareness is heightened, your connection to another human being is something that cannot be expressed, and above all else, the safety of your child is the most important thing in the world to you.

This couldn’t be more true for a mother who, thanks to her fast thinking and unconditional love for her daughter, was able to save the life of her newborn baby girl, who was only 12 days old. Those in her community as well as across the country are calling 21-year-old mother Shelby a hero.

Firefighters received a call about a house fire. By the time first responders got to the home, which Shelby shared with her mother, the 21-year-old was deceased in a second-story bedroom. She died from carbon monoxide poisoning.

They were surprised to find that her baby wasn’t with her.

The baby, Keana, was found on top of a pile of debris, safely strapped into her carseat. She had been dropped from a second-story window that Shelby broke to save her daughter’s life.

Even in the most life-threatening circumstances and with an incredibly limited amount of time, Shelby had the presence of mind to quickly strap her into the carseat.

Other than a minor burn, the infant was completely unharmed. Responders took her to the hospital in good condition and released her shortly after.

Chief of Fire Protection District, Ed, said:

“It’s just incredible that she was able to pull her thoughts together to save her baby… I’d say it’s nothing short of a miracle the way it ended up.”

Her aunt, Kathy, said, “Shelby was so proud of this beautiful baby girl.”

Our prayers are with Shelby’s family as they mourn the loss of this warrior mama bear, whose final act proved just how great her love was for her baby girl.
