911 dispatcher hailed a hero after delivering baby

ROBESON COUNTY, N.C. (WTVD) -- Katrina Oxendine was off work Wednesday but came in to meet the woman who she helped deliver her baby.

Oxendine is a 911 dispatcher for Robeson County and over the years has helped thousands with emergencies.

"This is not the first time I've helped deliver a baby. What makes this so special is I got to hear the entire thing and when I heard that crying I couldn't believe it," said Oxendine.
Robeson County presented her with a pin of honor.

She is first in the county to receive the Life Saving Incentive award.
