8-year-old Florida girl helps mom deliver baby brother

It was a big job for a little girl in Florida.

floridagirldeliversbrotherEight-year-old Jazmine says she was home alone with her mom, Krystal, when she heard her screaming on the bathroom floor of their home.

Krystal’s water broke two weeks early.

Jazmine quickly called 9-1-1, and 13 minutes later with the help of a dispatcher, Joseph James Snyder made his appearance into the world.

The dispatcher said Jazmine screamed every time her mother did. But she talked the child through the process.

Jazmine made her mother comfortable on some towels and then unlocked the door when paramedics arrived.

Both mom and baby Joseph are doing fine.
