AKRON, Ohio — Akron police are crediting a 911 dispatcher for keeping a 5-year-old boy calm while paramedics rushed to aid his unconscious mother and his crying infant brother.
Dispatcher Genau Nuosce and the boy speak almost casually during the eight-minute recorded phone call released by authorities on Wednesday. While waiting for help, the child is instructed how to prepare a bottle of formula to soothe the cries of his 2-month-old brother.
