A mum couldn’t believe her luck when she caught the moment her baby spoke on camera.
But instead of it being a simple word like ‘mum’, ‘dad’ or ‘dog’ – her little girl said something quite chilling which later led to her having surgery.
TikTok user @shawnaannie shared the tot’s first words in a video that has since been viewed more than 927,000 times – and viewers are just as terrified as she is.
“When your daughter’s first words are a plea for help,” she wrote in the caption.
In the clip, her daughter who’s laying on her lap can be seen gargling and making baby noises before clearly saying: “Help me mum.”
The short clip which quickly racked up more than 284,000 likes and 2,100 comments, left people Shawna’s followers creeped out.
One person said: “HELL NO LMAO ‘help me mommy.'”
Another wrote: “It was so clear too omg.”
Whilst a third viewer commented: “I did not expect that in the least bit.”
Someone else added: “That scared me [for real].”
“I would simply hand her to her father, he will help you ma’am goodbye,” joked another viewer.
Shawna later commented to say that not only was it her ‘first words’, but that she’d ‘never said a damn syllable’ before that.
But the creepy plea later led to a shocking discovery.
The mum said: “That shook me. I took her to the paediatrician, who sent us to the cardiologist who heard a murmur. She had surgery less than a month later.”
In a follow-up clip, Shawna showed that her now two-year-old is in great health after having heart surgery.
