‘We do not think of dispatchers as heroes, but that night, Jeff was mine.’

“I told him I needed to call for an ambulance, and again, he said no. I told him we had to. He asked me to give him ‘10 more minutes.’ Finally, I told him he didn’t have to hurt, and I was calling. He looked me straight in the face and said, ‘If you do, I’ll never forgive you.’”
