ODESSA - An Odessa baby got off to quite an unusual start to life.

Dispatcher Christina Davis took a call back on May 25th from a mother about to give birth.

There wasn't enough time to get to the hospital, so Davis talked the woman through delivering her baby.

She says she's happy she could help bring another life into her city.

The City of Odessa gave Davis an award for her outstanding performance on the job at a special presentation on Thursday afternoon.
