TECUMSEH, Oklahoma -

911 dispatchers are paid to stay calm under pressure, but they'll tell you, one of toughest parts of the job is being exposed to life and death situations where the outcome isn't good or never known.

One 911 call for a Pottawatomie County dispatcher brings tears each time she hears it.

The call on August 3 is from a mother frantic with an unresponsive 1-month-old child.

"We do it everyday. I've taken thousands of calls over the last six years, and you always have that one," dispatcher Stephanie Brewer said.

"My baby is not breathing," a frantic Cheryl Stowe said on the 911 call.

Brewer talked Stowe through CPR over the phone.

Stowe knew CPR but says she wasn't sure she was doing it correctly.

About five minutes after 911 was first dialed, Stowe delivered the miraculous news.

"She's breathing," Stowe said through tears on the 911 recording.

Now, 2-month-old Elizabeth is also heard crying on the recording as well.

"She's our guardian angel. That's what we call her, our guardian angel," Stowe said about Brewer.

"I think it was God's will, I really do," Brewer said.

Doctors believe that Brewer and Stowe prevented a case of sudden infant death syndrome.

Elizabeth has not had a similar incident since and wears a device that monitors her breathing at night.
