CUYAHOGA FALLS -- Christmas came early for a 5-year-old boy who suffers from sleepwalking episodes.
Jacob Dailey got a surprise visit from Santa Claus: a new, safety sleeper bed that will protect him from wandering off at night.
Channel 3 first brought you Jacob's story last month. Jacob has a few serious health issues, and is a clinically diagnosed sleepwalker.
In November, he managed to bypass his bed alarm and unbolt the front door, and wander out into the chilly night.
A good samaritan found Jacob walking a mile from his house, totally unaware of what was going on. The man called police, and Jacob was safely returned home.
Jacob's parents contacted Fund it Forward, a local non-profit that provides adaptive medical equipment for families that insurance does not pay for.
The Daileys heard about a bed, called The Safety Sleeper, that zips up like a tent. It is designed for children with disabilities to keep them from roaming at night.
Through Channel 3 viewer donations, Fund it Forward was able to raise the $1,600 needed to get Jacob the bed in time for Christmas.
Friday night, he happily unwrapped the only present he wanted for Christmas.
Now, he and his parents can both get a good night's sleep.
Fund It Forward has about 50 families in need of equipment like safety beds, and seizure monitors. To learn about the kids in need, and how you can help, check out the link on this page.
