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.”

Hope the dad had nothing too serious wrong, otherwise what a cool story.

That is quite possibly the sweetest thing I have read in a long time

She must have Stewie Griffin in her womb.
Wake up woman! Father isn't breathing.

If he wasn't breathing when she woke and didn't start breathing until the police revived him - wouldn't that have been at least 15 minutes you think? Wouldn't he be brain dead?

In addition to that, it says in the article that after several dozen compressions he started breathing again. It says that after it says that the police showed up and revived him. I would imagine that several dozen compressions would take place before the police had time to get there. Also, who sends the police to a medical emergency? I guess they might have been cruising the neighborhood. Things don't add up here, and I suspect it is just unclear journalism.

If it's true, cool story.
I'm afraid that it might be propaganda seeing as the website is focused on stopping abortions.

Is any other news outlet covering this story?
