Tarek and Christina El Moussa had a scare when 911 had to be dialed for their three-year-old son, Brayden!!
‘Flip or Flop’ hosts Tarek and Christina El Moussa had a scare when 911 had to be dialed for their three-year-old son, Brayden. Here’s the reason why their toddler needed to get in an ambulance, ASAP.
Tarek El Moussa, 37, shared a concerning post to Instagram on Oct. 15. Pictured in a hospital bed was his son Brayden, 3, whom he shares with Flip or Flop co-host and ex-wife Christina, 35. Tarek revealed that while Brayden was at his grandmother’s house over the weekend, a 911 call was made to get Brayden in an ambulance. Croup was to blame. It’s an “inflammation of the vocal cords (larynx) and windpipe (trachea),” which can cause “difficulty of breathing,” a “barking cough,” and “hoarse voice,” according to MedlinePlus. Brayden’s dad was especially concerned about the first symptom. “It is always very scary to see your child having a hard time breathing,” he captioned the post. But Tarek also had a PSA to make, adding, “I’m sharing this to remind people it’s okay to ask for help in scary situations. The police and fire department are trained to help in these situations.” We’re happy that 911 call was made, considering the pictures Christina shared afterwards!
