Dispatcher Helps Save Baby by Talking Dad through CPR

A Cal Fire dispatcher was honored Monday for helping save an infant’s life.

As reported by KCRA, Wren, who is now 4 months old, suddenly stopped breathing the morning of May 13.

Her father called 911 and dispatcher Chris Africa was able to help talk him through infant CPR. They were able to keep Wren’s heart beating until an ambulance arrived.

On Monday, Wren and her parents met Africa in person and thanked him for his help.
