911 phone operator saves her father's life on first day

911 Phone Operator Saves Her Father's Life on First Day
Imagine being a 911 operator and hearing your aunt on the other end saying your father has gone into diabetic shock. Well, that was exactly what happened to a woman in Atlanta woman. "Fox & Friends" has more.


'Crystal Morrow was her name, and she was just 4 hours into her first shift on the job' when she got that scary call.

According to WAGA, Morrow had spent months training to be a 911 operator, and it that training quickly paid off.

'Because there were so many people been in the room I didn't think that I would get the call, and it's crazy that I got it on the very first day.' 'She had taken about 40 calls that day but never thought she would hear a familiar voice.'

Morrow was reportedly so calm her aunt didn't even realize she was talking to her niece. WGHP has a recording of the 911 call.

'I will get the paramedics started. Are you with him now?' 'Yes I am.' 'And is he awake?' 'Yes he is.' 'Stay on the line and I will tell you exactly what to do next.'

Morrow sent an ambulance to transport her father, and now he's expected to be just fine.
