911 operator helps deliver 2 babies
A new bundle of joy entered the world with the help of a Fort Bend County 911 operator.
Chelsea Lynn Taylor takes numerous calls each day on the job. She's trained to help people.
"You have to make sure that they're listening to you," said Taylor. "And making sure that everything is going good."
But just last week she received her second call in five days to help two separate women deliver babies. In both cases their water broke and their labor progressed too rapidly to transport the women to the hospital.
Last Wednesday, Taylor helped Tams Myke-Kambi deliver a healthy baby boy. Myke-Kambi's cousin is the one who made the 911 call.
"She was able to make sure that we were calm and help us make sure that the baby was safe," said Princess Tamuno
The baby, named Miracle, lies safely in his mother's arms now, but when he was first delivered he wouldn't cry. A critical detail for a newborn -- Taylor instructed the family on how to make that happen -- and got results.
"Knowing that the baby was breathing and alive," said Taylor. "It was a good moment to hear it cry."
"I want to say a very big 'Thank you' to her for assistance, being there, giving us instructions," said Myke-Kambi.
