Dispatcher meets baby she delivered

Bountiful Police Department

BOUNTIFUL, Utah (KSTU) -

A Bountiful 911 dispatcher got a chance to meet the baby she helped deliver over the phone when the family wasn't able to make it to a hospital in time.

On May 17, Communication Officer Woodall took a call from a family stopped alongside Interstate 15.

Family members told her their baby was on its way, according to the Bountiful Police Department.

Woodall was able to talk the family through the birth, wrapping the baby in a shirt and tying off the umbilical cord. The South Davis Metro Fire arrived and transported the mother and baby to the hospital.

The baby girl weighed in at 6 pounds, 19 ounces and measured 19 inches long.

The family brought the newborn by the police station to meet Woodall and to express their gratitude, according to the Bountiful City Police Department.

Woodall has been with the department for five years.
