Mom credits 911 dispatcher for helping save 2-month old
A Goshen mother credits a 911 operator with saving the life of her 2-month-old son.
The mother called Orange County 911 after her baby stopped breathing on March 10. On the other line was 27-year-old county dispatcher Courtney Starac, who began talking the panicked mother through CPR.
Starac, a new dispatcher, was one of nine operators on the floor that day, and says the call was unlike any she's taken before.
And after a grueling four minutes, the baby began to breathe again and started crying.
"Had it not been for her, I don't know if I would have been able to do what I did," says the mother.
The boy's mother has told News 12 that her son was sick with a cold when he stopped breathing.
Despite the ordeal, she says he is now OK.
