Police Share Video Of 2-year-old Saved From Drowning As Warning | NBC Nightly News

More than a dozen people were at a small pool outside Detroit when a 2-year-old …


  1. How come NBC is reporting on this, and reporting on a woman accidentally swallowing an engagement ring, but there is not even ONE mention of the state of Georgia taking away peoples free speech and forcing them to sign contracts of loyalty to Israel?

  2. In two weeks we need to have a dance off for little Dillion! Even if you can't dance or you are physically unable to, find a way to do so because Dillion will be home. God bless them!

  3. I’m sorry, but there’s often a faith backstory behind these stories, and MSM CHOOSES to edit out the backdrop. Why? Separation of church and state? When did MSM decided it was the state? You can’t celebrate the action without understanding the faith that is behind it.

    Get viable soon, little guy.

  4. The odds are with him, my sister was 2 months early and weighed 2lbs in the 1960s. She's still here.
    15 years from now that little boy will be embarrassed by the videos. LOL

  5. Been there..it's going to be tough..
    BUT wait until Baby speaks first words!! O..M..G

  6. Had to let you know my grand son was premie he weighed 3 lbs lost 1/2 of that , he'll be 20 3-25-20 plays basketball @Washington state yes they are funny lookin' but they grow up to be AMAZING as Dillon WILL ,GOD'S holding all 3 of you as Dillon sleeps with Angel's don't give up👼

  7. Omgggg this is soo touching. Prayers out 100000%

  8. 10 weeks early? omg! I'm scared already. They should have waited!

  9. God be with your family baby so cute will be home with you soon

  10. When my son was 30 days old the ER doctor said there was no way to save him. This was 49 years ago when there was very little to be done for sick babies. As a desperate mother, out of God only knows where, a sense of outrage came over me. I came for help and they were not going to help me. I said if you don't do everything you can do to save my baby my lawyer will be talking to your administrator first thing in the morning. I didn't even have a lawyer and I was young and trusting that doctors knew everything. So they got the baby on an IV and then did every test known to man and found what the problem was and they saved my baby. Our case went into the medical journals and changed the way newborns and infants are treated. I refused to leave my baby out of fear they would let him die, at a time when parents were almost banned from the nursery. We were told to go home or wait in the waiting room. The astute nurses noticed my baby responded to me and other babies left alone were dying. Our case changed how parents were involved, or not, in a baby's care and best chance for survival.
    Newborns do fight to live, but not without anyone to cheer them on and help them live. God Bless the Askew family and medical commuity
    Oooopps God already did.

  24. This is one of those comments that you leave because you've been there and you just want to share the joy because you know.

    8 years ago my son was born prematurely and spent a month on the children's hospital in NICU. I went every day…..I suffered death every time he went limp and his heart rate dropped. I cried alone many nights…waiting till they were able to tell me he can come home. When he was finally able to come home I jumped around….I punched a wall….I yelled inside.

    Everyone knew my pain because it was written all over it. This man….his team…supports him. They helped him get thru it.

    That's love….and trust me. I share and know your joy!! Your son will be stronger than most!!! I know because my son is now 8!

  25. NICU granma here. My grandson was born 3 months early last Sept & weighed 2 lbs. Was in the hospital for 4 months & 2 weeks, just came home. This is such a special thing to do, made me smile & cry. Our thoughts & prayers r with your family.

  26. I am 16 years old now but I was also a Premature. My parents were in the same condition very scared and I was rushed away as soon as I was born. I am sending my prayers towards you and your family!

  27. The tears are rolling…! Sending healing thoughts to you 💐

  28. Here you have Matthew 7:14….I have always loved this verse. I often use it in my own messages. What is amazing about this scripture. "Few will be that find it" It doesn't say a few billion or a few million will find it. It says only a few will find it, for the road is narrow. Jesus, who is speaking with the multitudes also teaches "NOT ALL" that call on Him will enter the Kingdom of heaven. Not all, no one, not anybody will receive the kingdom of heaven but only those that do the Father's will. And what is the Father's very first commandment!? NOT TO PLACE ANY OTHER GOD BEFORE HIM. When you pray to God then end your prayer to Jesus name. DEAF EARS! You will not be one of the few. Period!

    If Christians all believe in Jesus Christ, and submit to Jesus Christ as there personal savior. Why then would not all of those receive the kingdom of heaven that call on Jesus Christ? Why is it that only a few will receive the kingdom and not all? This is a very deep scripture when you think about it. And it does have hidden meaning behind it.

    So what Jesus is saying is just a few that call on Him will receive the kingdom. Not all. I think as a Christian being taught Jesus' lessons would be more concerned if only a few are gonna make it to the kingdom of heaven. Are you gonna make it? Is others gonna make it? Are the listeners gonna make it? Are You the few? Who is few?

    We have seven billion people on this planet, so we have been told. Tell me something! With all your wisdom. How did we get to 7,000,000,000 people in 4,000 years since the flood, if in that 4,000 years we have literally killed billions of men, woman and children?

    Do the math and figure that one out. Common sense! Can't get to that number of people in 4,000 short years. No sir! Common sense! So then either we don't have 7,000,000,000 on the earth, or we have been here a lot longer than what we have been told. And since God is eternal I'm thinking we have been here a long mother f-ing time, much longer than 6,000 years. MUCH MUCH LONGER!

    You see I'm just trying to wake people up to the common sense issues. I won't throw a scripture out there until its needed but I would like to expand on the few that will receive God's kingdom. You see humanity, reporters and all your listeners. I will receive my Father's kingdom. I have found grace through my Creator and have placed nothing before Him as my mediator. I sinned against God and I call on my Creator to cover my sins. All of them. The bible says we are not to eat flesh and blood of animals, as well as humans, but Christians indulge metaphorically drinking the blood of Christ, and eating His flesh of bread. Its disgusting and foul.

    Lets play with some numbers here. If Jesus is telling us that only a few will make it to the kingdom of Heaven and you have 3,000,000,000 followers of Jesus Christ wouldn't you agree that that's a scary number if you are a Christian. Only a few of you are getting in. Not all! So tell me Christians and atheist. What few is it that will get in the kingdom of heaven out of billions of souls? I'll tell you. Those that did not place any other god before God. Those are the ones that will receive the kingdom of God's glory. No others!

    You see humanity, that's why I will stand up right and blameless before my Creator. This is why I will stand with beautiful Spiritual garments. My Father is not holy/hol-e. He is whole, He is wholly, He is Wholeness, He is complete, and perfect of nature. I only aspire to be like my Creator. He that Created me in his image. Can't touch that!

    "Christianity is the most perverse religion that has ever shone on man." Thomas Jefferson.

    You see those that are gonna make it to the kingdom of heaven are those that pray in God's perfect nature. Those that submit to the wholly spirit that they are sinners, that they have sinned against God, his children, as well as the earth, sky, and our waters.

    Those that Call on God and place no other gods before him. Those are the few Christian that will make it to the kingdom of God's heaven. And those that pray to God then end a prayer asking all those things in Jesus Christ name will not make it to the kingdom of heaven for you have broken the very 1st commandment. You have placed Jesus Christ at God's throne before God. Blasphemy!!!!!

    Man has manifested another god before God when you pray in Jesus name. Let me tell you something whether you know so or not. Fall on your knees and drop the cover story of Jesus Christ. Ask God only for what you want without mention of Jesus, or any other name given to the Son though the ages. That's when you will feel the wholly Spirit move through you. Its never gonna happen on this realm praying in your false gods name Jesus! He is a circus show! He is an actor.

    Jesus Christ is the god of this world. Jesus Christ is the Son of God also the Son of man. Jesus Christ was flesh and He was not perfect! Prove to me He was. You can't. You only have to have faith that He was, PERFECT!. Sorry! I place no lessons in any mans hands on this realm when "ALL MEN BE LIARS" Don't get me wrong! I respect you even though your lessons are wrong about Jesus. Straight talk.

    They say the biggest trick Satan did was pulling the wool over our eyes of his none existence. No! The biggest trick Satan pulled over your eyes was getting nations and billions of people to worship a deity god in Jesus Christ! That was the great misleading! This is the great misleading. WHY? Because even the elected have been taught and deceived of the lessons of Jesus Christ, on this realm! DO NOT CALL GOD BY NAME. JUST CALL HIM YOUR CREATOR! A name given to a god on this realm exists only because of language. When I die my Creator can say. "Hello my devoted son it is I your father, then give me His name. Until then I will never give my Creator a name. No sir! No way, no how!

    Until humanity can openly admit that they have seen God face to face as I have seen God face to face. Until they can openly admit they have learned the meaning of Genesis Ch 32 when Jacob wrestles with the angels. Ministers lesson to get you to worship Jesus Christ are wrong. And If you think I'm a liar then please refer back to Matthew 7:14 "But only a few" that call on me Lord Lord.

    Its time for people to wake up, and as long as you are placing Jesus Christ a Man born Flesh at God's throne. YOU WILL NOT BE ONE OF THE FEW TO INHERIT OUR CREATOR'S KINGDOM.

    Anytime you want to have a debate. Anytime you want to debate the scriptures I'm willing and ready to do so. All I bring is the Spirit of my Creator. You can bring Jesus! Pff.

    God the Creator VS Jesus the Created. Yeah! I know who my Spirit is going with. The one that breathed a spirit into me.

    In close this is why you must learn:

    Matthew 7:21 Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of My Father in heaven.

    Romans 10:13 for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” So which is it? Are we saved or are we not saved. Don't answer that. Right now you are not a saved Spirit of the Creator. Just saying!

    Hence the argument that the bible does contradict itself. Meaning you need to find the hidden message. English is a split tongue language. It always has two meanings. Its very evil. Everyday You and I both sin against God simply by speaking the English language. Those are the sins against God we do not understand or see, but they are there. Just saying!

    I love you guys. I love. I Love you humanity abroad! I don't care what color, greed, or type. I love those that love God. And in the end those that have placed Jesus before God at God's throne shall be the many that fall far from God's grace. Just saying!

    John K. Carpenter.
