Redford 911 dispatchers and police are being credited with saving the life of a 10-month-old girl who stopped breathing at home, early Sunday morning.

Police tell us they received the emergency call for help from a neighbor who assisted with CPR.

During the incident, a dispatcher was able to calmly give instructions to the caller while they waited for police and EMS to arrive.

When an ambulance got to the scene, the baby was already breathing and was transported to the Beaumont Botsford Campus in Farmington Hills.

The baby girl was released from the hospital Monday, and is now home safe with family.

Her grandmother tells 7 Action News they are extremely grateful to those who helped save her life.
