Little Girl Can’t Wake Up, Then Alarmed Mom Realizes She Has “Sunless Heatstroke”

By

Folks, you may not knows this, but hot cars are not the only place for heatstroke.

One mom, Jennifer Abma, is sharing the terrifying story of what happened to her daughter, Anastasia, to warn other parents about the dangers.

Jennifer shared what happened on her Facebook page, where her post quickly went viral. Within two weeks, the post had over 11,000 reactions and 46,000 shares.

She wrote: THIS was my evening, this was the scariest moment I’ve had to imagine, THIS is severe heatstroke. There is nothing scarier than not being able to wake your baby up.

THIS is clear proof a child doesn’t need to be in the sun to get heatstroke. It took us 20 minutes to wake her up, when ambulance came, they came with investigators because they didn’t know what to expect as did I. This was proof how fast things change.

Anastasia put herself for a nap. I had no idea how hot her bedroom was until I went to wake her up soaked in sweat, red face, boiling and unable to wake her for 15 minutes, ambulance arrived faster than I could have ever imagined and took her sugars which were 1.2 and should be above 4, they administered sucrose and in minutes she started crying clearly scared.

Still I’m shook and I can’t imagine what would have happened if I didn’t go check on her. We definitely had God on our side yesterday and I am thankful for emergency services and Jay who came as fast as possible to keep me together.

Did you know that hot bedrooms could be as dangerous as hot cars?

Thank God Anastasia is well!
