A huge shoutout to ALL the Moms that work hard everyday to raise their kids! With that being said, I’ve heard a lot of touching stories this Mother’s Day but one amazing story comes out of Minneapolis. A screaming 10 month old saves her family from a house explosion!
If I wouldn’t have woken up to her, or if I wouldn’t have cried in time, we’d all be dead,” mom Samantha Meeks said. “We had an angel, that’s for sure.”
She remembers waking to her daughter, who cried in a way she never did before.
“She had crawled into the corner of her bed, sitting up, and her screams were really scratchy, really loud,” Meeks said.
Meeks realized hot ashes fell from the ceiling into her baby’s crib, coming from the baby’s grandmother’s bedroom directly upstairs.
“Everything just started coming down and started burning,” Meeks said.
Meeks grabbed her two daughters and her boyfriend rushed his mother out of the house when they realized that her oxygen tanks were left in the house. In seconds, the tanks exploded and blew out the windows. Even though they lost the whole house, the family is counting their blessings because they were able to save everyone.
