The first day of the new year was pretty eventful for Lamar Austin.
The 30-year-old welcomed a son and got fired on the very same day — Jan. 1. But thanks to a few good deeds, things are looking up for the faithful father.
On Dec. 31, Austin’s wife Lindsay went into labor. He decided that he was going to stay by her side for the birth of their son, Caiman — who ended up being the first child born in Concord, New Hampshire in 2017.
Yet, in order to do this Austin had to forgo two days of work as a part-time security guard with a company called Salerno Protective Services while his wife was in labor.
