Sullivan County dispatcher honored for successful baby delivery over the phone
A Sullivan County, Tennessee emergency dispatcher was honored Friday for a 12-minute call earlier this year that was anything but routine.
Lindsey Jones, a four-year veteran of the Sheriff's Office, was given a special stork pin by Sheriff Wayne Anderson that signifies her assistance in helping a family deliver their baby on June 10.
The 29-year-old mom was 39 weeks along in her pregnancy and went into labor. Jones said she remained calm and gave the family the medical instructions that they were able to employ until EMS crews arrived to take care of the baby boy.
In her four years on the force this was Jones' first child birth call, the report noted.
