Local newborn makes a miraculous entrance

By Adam Hooper - bio | email

LAKE CHARLES (KPLC) - It holds a whole different meaning to the term, home delivery. An expectant mother was in for the surprise of her life when doctors sent her home 24 hours before she went into labor.

Little Nylyn Jackson is new to this world, and lucky to be here. His mother, Scottraia Jackson said she went to Women and Children's hospital as soon as she started to have close contractions. But, after the four minute cycle turned into a ten minute cycle doctors sent her home. They said it was false labor pains, a common occurrence. But in this case it was not the case at all.

"I stayed in labor, pretty much, for 26 hours. And, at the very end I felt his head was coming out," said Scottraia Jackson.

It was time. Nylyn was coming, and they were no where near a hospital.

"I was telling her, we're going to have to push. We are going to have to do this. We are going to have to do this now," said Crystal Ceasar.

With the help of a family friend, who remained calm during a scary situation, Jackson was able to successfully deliver a healthy baby boy.

"She went ahead and pushed, and pushed, and he came," said Ceasar.

Looking back, now that everything is back to normal, or as normal as it can be with a new baby in the house,  Jackson said it is still hard to believe what happened.

"Everyday I look in the room where I had him, and I am like, oh my God, I had a baby at home, in my bed," said Jackson

The household seems to be adjusting well to their new guest, who for the past week, has been getting a lot of attention.

"It's fun, but they can be a little stingy with him," said Faith Ceasar.

Jackson said she wants everyone to know how grateful she it to the person who saved her son's life.

"It's something you can't repay somebody for. I'll never forget it, and I'll never let him forget it," said Jackson.

Nylyn Jackson was born at home, on August 2, 2010, at 12:08 in the morning. He weighed 5 pounds, 2 ounces.

    Section 8 applicants will still face difficulties finding low rent housing

    Monday, July 24 2017 8:16 PM EDT2017-07-25 00:16:54 GMT

    Part of the reason the waiting list takes for Section 8 Housing takes so long to pare down is because there's a shortage of Section 8 housing, at least in the Lake Charles area. It's because of the economy...and high rents.  Local officials are working to increase the dollars available, but it's still hard for residents to find the housing. "It's harder than Houston and Houston is bigger," said Kristina Broussard,  who lives in public hou...
