We had zipped into the baby shop to grab something. On our way out, I was walking with my six month old little man in my arms to the car when loose gravel rocks caught under my feet resulted in me falling. The entire scene played out in slow motion.
Throughout all of it, I had bub tightly in my arms. My knees and elbows took the brunt of the fall. But bub didn’t get out of it unscathed. The back of his head hit the bitumen ground resulting in him screaming immediately.
A big lump came up on his head immediately. I was still on the ground when I handed bub over to my partner and said to get inside and get staff to call an ambulance immediately.
I knew I was ok, but a little baby is unable to communicate, and I wasn’t going to take any risks. The paramedics arrived and treated him before taking us off to hospital so he could be monitored.
While I am thankful he is ok, I was gobsmacked that so many people saw it happen…they saw me holding a baby, fall, yet they did and said nothing. I don’t know about you, but my partner and I are the first to come to people’s aide.
