Family thanks dispatcher for helping save Bixby teen's life
(Tulsa, Ok)-The grandmother of a Bixby teenager meets and thanks the EMSA dispatcher who helped save her grandson’s life. Monday, Trent Morris received a 9-1-1 call from Bixby High School. A 15-year-old was in cardiac arrest. He guided a teacher through CPR and use of a defibrillator and the boy was revived. The grandmother, Barbara Smart, says it’s critical to have those devices available in public places.
The boy has been transferred to Arkansas Children’s Hospital and will be placed on the heart transplant list.
