A close call for Gibson family's 4-month-old

Four-month-old Eddie Gibson acted fussy late Friday afternoon; he didn't seem to want to lie down. So his mother, Breann, decided against placing him on the living room couch or in his crib for a nap. The baby's mood on this day -- and his mother's resulting decision -- very likely combined to save his life.

Four-month-old Eddie Gibson acted fussy late Friday afternoon; he didn't seem to want to lie down. So his mother, Breann, decided against placing him on the living room couch or in his crib for a nap.

The baby's mood on this day -- and his mother's resulting decision -- very likely combined to save his life.

A electric-related fire in the attic of the Gibson's home caused the ceiling to fall on the couch.

Breann said her baby would have been crushed if she had placed Eddie in his crib or on the couch.

Where are these folks staying? I have things for them but not sure exactly where to connect. The previous article said if no one home leave items outside, which isn't a good idea. Any help would be appreciated as Im preparing a basket today.

I took a bunch of items to 92 Wooster last night. He is their neighbor and is collecting things for them. As far as where they are staying, I am not sure. I really hope a landlord comes through for them so they can get a place with no deposit or rent for the first month since they just moved in and lost everything.
