Mom Straps Baby In Carseat And Throws Her Out Two-Story Window Seconds Before Taking Her Final Breath


21-year-old Shelby Ann Carter was building an idyllic family life. She and her boyfriend lived with her mother in Wyoming, Ill.

At the beginning of January 2017, the couple welcomed a beautiful daughter into the world. Shelby was absolutely delighted to be a mother.


However, her plans for the future would end sadly.

On January 30th in 2017, the worst thing possible happened — and it was a terrible tragedy.

Shelby Carter was home alone with her newborn daughter when their home suddenly caught fire.

It spread quickly and in just a few seconds the house was filled with dangerous smoke — and there was no way to escape.

Firefighters rushed to the fire-filled house, but when the flames were finally under control they made a horrendous discovery on the second floor.

Shelby Carter had succumbed the smoke and died. She died from carbon monoxide poisoning.

But in the middle of this tragedy, the firefighters found something amazing — and it showed them that a parent will do anything for her child.

Even in the most life-threatening circumstances, and with an incredibly limited amount of time, Shelby had the presence of mind to quickly strap her into the carseat.

This hero mom had secured her newborn daughter in a car seat and then dropped her from the second-floor window.

With her last breath, she sacrificed her life for her daughter’s.

When the firefighters found the little girl, who is named Keana, they took her straight to the hospital worried that she had also been injured by the smoke.

But, thanks to Shelby Carter’s quick thinking and actions, her daughter was completely unscathed.

“It’s just incredible that she was able to pull her thoughts together to save her baby… I’d say it’s nothing short of a miracle the way it ended up”, Chief of the Wyoming-Speer Fire Protection District Ed Foglesonger told The Washington Post.

Shelby Carter’s death was painful blow to the residents of Wyoming, a close-knit town of 1,400 people about three hours southwest of Chicago.

Following the catastrophe, neighbors started spreading the word on the Internet to help rebuild the house and provide some financial support for Shelby’s family members.

In just a few weeks, their fund reached almost $40,000.

Shelby Carter’s actions show the power of a mother’s love for her children.

A lthough it is a devastating loss and Keana will never meet her mother, she can grow up proud.

Guy Refuses To Pay $126 For His Date’s Food, So She Shows Him Her True Colors

In the old days, when women were less likely to work and earn their own money, it became normal for the man to pick up the bill while dating.

In some cultures, this hangover from the past is still very much the accepted norm, while in countries like Denmark for example, men insisting on paying for everything can be seen as rude.


First dates can be an awkward social minefield in general, and this little ambiguity only adds to the confusion. Reddit user u/CuteBananaMuffin decided to share his story recently, and it’s fair to say, his date was definitely the old-fashioned type.

He obviously thought it had gone pretty well, and perhaps it had, up until the fateful moment the restaurant bill appeared. Scroll down below to check out how this entitled woman responded to his request.
