Chilton County 9-1-1 Dispatcher Kelly Smitherman, center, was recognized Thursday fro helping save the life of the infant neice of Shannon Cobb, left. 9-1-1 Director Dan Wright presented Smitherman with the award.
Smitherman took a call on Sept 2 about an infant who had choked and stopped breathing, and she walked Cobb through administering the "baby Heimlich" maneuver. "If it wasn't for her telling us what to do at the time, my niece would no longer be here" Cobb said.
