Washington: An 11-year-old boy in the US is being praised after he delivered his baby brother with help from an emergency operator when his mother suddenly went into labour at home.
James Dukes, from Marietta, Georgia, was at home with his mother, Kenyarda, earlier this week when she suddenly went into labour earlier than expected.
James then jumped into action to help deliver the baby.
“It didn’t really scare me. It was more just like, let me clean the baby off, make sure he’s OK, make sure my mom’s OK,” James said.
James called 911 and the emergency operator instructed him on what to do to keep the newborn safe and warm until help could arrive, a television channel reported.
The mother and James’ baby brother are both doing well.
“He was my help, he was my guardian angel. He was the man, he was the doctor, he was my superhero,” Kenyarda said.
