Crying Baby Saves Parents' Lives

Monique Ruppel was woken one night when her daughter, Celia, was screaming. Ruppel wrote on Facebook that Celia wakes up once per night with a little whimper, maybe needing a bottle or cuddling. This time, she was crying her lungs out.

Ruppel wanted to help her, but she experienced vertigo and fell. Her husband, Kyle, woke up and realized something was wrong. Both parents felt nauseous and dizzy with burning eyes.

They fought their way to Celia's room, picking her up before she started vomiting. Then, the cat collapsed at the mother's feet as Kyle was in the other room packing a bag and calling his parents.

Kyle's parents arrived to help and called emergency services on their behalf. The family was rushed to the hospital where it was discovered they had suffered carbon monoxide poisoning. The Ruppel's spent 7.5 hours and three sessions in a Hyperbaric Chamber. They are all expected to make a full recovery.

If Celia hadn't cried, they might not have survived.
