10-year-old boy helps mom deliver baby brother

SULPHUR, La. -- A 10-year-old boy is being hailed a hero after stepping in to deliver his baby brother.

"I'm just so proud of him. I don't think he understands how big this is. He saved me and his brother's life," said his mother, Ashley Moreau.

Moreau said she didn't realize she was in labor until she went to the bathroom and saw her baby's feet hanging out.

Her son, Jayden, quickly ran to his grandmother's house to call 911 and when he came back, his mom said he calmly asked her what he needed to do.

"I just had to pull him by his legs, not hard, gently, until he came out. I was just hoping I didn't hurt him when I was pulling him out," the young hero said.

Doctors said if Jayden hadn't stepped in, his brother would have died and his mother might have bled out during delivery.

Mom, baby, and big brother are doing fine.
