Fri. 5:54pm: Dispatcher coaches woman through birth

HAMBDEN TOWNSHIP – A grandmother had the unexpected opportunity of delivering her own grandchild about 7 p.m. Thursday – with more than a little help from a calm 911 dispatcher

Geauga County Sheriff’s Office dispatcher Aaron Holman took the call from a woman living near Chardon saying that her 39-year-old daughter was going into labor before her August due date.

As paramedics make their way to the woman’s home, Holman continues to walk the woman through the birthing process.
