June 5th was a very special day on the job for 9-1-1 dispatcher Tennie Roberts.

Just a couple of months ago the emergency responder got a call that Heather Watson's son, Dallas, had stopped breathing and was turning blue. Tennie talked the panicked mother through how to perform CPR on her four-week-old son, and now she’s getting to meet the very same boy she helped save.

This heartwarming moment shows just how much her quick-thinking heroism meant to the entire family.
