911 dispatcher

‘I can feel her head!’ You were pregnant, living under a bridge. Those precious cries are something I’ll never forget.’: 911 dispatcher shares act of kindness for homeless woman birthing twins, ‘sometimes all you need is a little love and support’

“It was 4 a.m. and 39 degrees outside. You had no pregnancy symptoms and found out barely a month ago you were expecting! The contractions hit. You thought you had time to get to the hospital. When they increased in intensity, you realized that was not the case. You quickly dialed 911 and they transferred you to me. This call was a rough one for me. You were in so much pain, cold, and all alone. As a mom too, I can’t imagine how you felt. I could tell you wanted to do better.”

‘It’s never left me. We don’t think of dispatchers as heroes, but that night, Jeff was mine.’: Wife thanks dispatcher’s ‘simple compassion’ during ‘biggest crisis’ as husband was dying

“I told him I needed to call for an ambulance, and again, he said no. I told him we had to. He asked me to give him ‘10 more minutes.’ Finally, I told him he didn’t have to hurt, and I was calling. He looked me straight in the face and said, ‘If you do, I’ll never forgive you.’ He was going to die. And worse yet, he was going to die hating me. Because I called.”
