Panic heard in 911 calls

Baby sitter called for help after boy found not breathing.
FROM STAFF REPORTS Published: November 27, 2011

EDMOND — In two emotional 911 calls March 8, baby sitter Traci Kramer cries out a baby boy's nickname and, in a hysterical voice, says, “Oh, God! What do I do?”

Police refused to make public the recordings of Kramer's calls for help for Jacob “Jake” Hedger, whose death has been ruled a homicide. The Oklahoman obtained the recordings from a source.

In the first brief call, a panting Kramer cries, “Jake! Jake!” An operator says, “Dang it. This is ridiculous.”

In the second longer call, an operator tells Kramer, then 40, to stay on the phone, then switches her to an EMSA worker. The EMSA worker quickly asks her some questions and then calmly instructs her on how to help the baby breathe until paramedics arrive.

“Hurry fast!” Kramer said. “I was getting him up from his nap to get my daughter and he was like just not there. … I don't see his chest moving. … I found him this way. … His lips are purple.”
