911 Dispatcher calls mother to help in rescue

CATHLAMENT, Wash. -- A Washington kayaker is alive thanks to a 911 dispatcher and the dispatcher's mom.

The dispatcher was getting ready to leave work when she overheard a call come in for a kayaker stranded on the river.

That is when she realized her family was nearby, so she called her own mom to help.

"Realized the area he was talking about I knew exactly where it was. It was basically right where most of my family was at that moment," said Raedyn Grasseth.

Her mom is a trained paramedic and she was able to get there in seven minutes, much faster than the sheriff's deputy who was 30 minutes away.

That kayaker survived the incident.
