January 16, 2012 ( – Sara McDonald is 7 ½ months pregnant, but says that her unborn child has already saved his father’s life.

In the early morning hours on Saturday, January 7, McDonald woke up after receiving a strong kick from her unborn baby. What followed was what she described to CBS Atlanta as “one of the scariest moments anyone could go through,” when she discovered that her husband wasn’t breathing and had no pulse.

Thanks to the timely wakeup call, she was able to begin giving her husband CPR, and to call 911. Though her own efforts at CPR were unsuccessful, two policemen who arrived were able to revive McDonald’s husband.


Sgt. Mike Hales said that at first, “He appeared deceased. We didn’t have a pulse. He wasn’t breathing.”

However, after several dozen compressions, he began to breathe again.

This story has a happy ending for this young family, but it probably wouldn’t have turned out so well if the family’s newest member hadn’t placed his fortuitous kick.

“It’s like my baby saved my husband’s life. And he’s not even here yet and he saved his dad’s life,” McDonald said.

“It’s an amazing feeling and I don’t think anyone else can say that.”
