On October 23, at home, a 10-year-old Missouri girl called Miracle Moore came to her mother's aid when she went into labor three weeks early. North County Fire & Rescue applauded their "local hero" for calling 9-1-1 and called the account of her bravery "amazing, wonderful, feel-good" in a post on their Facebook page.

Miracle was able to help and guide her mother Viola Fair, 30, to deliver her new baby sister, Jayla, safely thanks to the assistance of "calm, cool, and collected" dispatcher Scott Stranghoener, according to the post. The responsible fourth grader actually called emergency services at her mom's insistence. In the 11-minute recorded call, the fourth-grader said to the operator, "Hi, I think my mom is in labor." Taylor, Miracle's younger sister, was also present at the scene but was too young to make the call or help.
