A Suffolk County Emergency Medical Dispatcher helped guide a Stony Brook mother through the premature birth of twin boys on Tuesday, according to a press release from the office of County Executive Steve Bellone.
Emergency Services Dispatcher Christine Springer, of St. James, took the 911 call at 1:42 p.m. on Tuesday from the 48-year-old woman, who was in her 27th week of pregnancy.
