Leo, the son of Aston Villa star Leon Bailey, and his partner Stephanie Hope were involved in a car accident with a car falling on the freeway.
The Villa Winger immediately left the camp and headed for the hospital. He says it was “the longest car ride ever.”
Thankfully, neither the baby Leo nor his partner Stephanie were injured.
Bailey said Instagram: “A game day I will never forget. Just shortly before the game, I received the most devastating call.
“I was informed that my family had a horrific car accident. I can’t explain the thoughts that came to my mind.
“At that moment, there was nothing wrong except expecting them to be still alive. Immediately I left the camp at the hospital. It was like the longest car ride ever.
“By the grace of God, they were with us today and were not injured. Nevertheless, they gave me the blessing to advance the match.
“It may not have been my best game, but I played for my family. I played for my country, and it’s confusing my world. In the meantime gave me encouragement.
“Thank you for visiting us today. We pray for your concern and happiness.
“We ask you to keep us in your prayers and respect our privacy.”
Bailey joined the villa last summer for £ 30m from Bayer Leverkusen.
He was on vacation in Jamaica with his family before reporting on his international mission.
