Diane Waldroop is a 911 operator who obviously goes above and beyond. Because she followed her instincts, she's being credited with saving the life of a woman who was being held captive and brutally raped.

While she was on the job Saturday, Waldroop received a hangup call. When she called the number back, the call was intercepted by a man who claimed everything was OK. Waldroop knew better. The Island County (WA) 911 operator then traced the address and dispatched police. The man responsible for the attack was found shortly thereafter, hiding in nearby woods.

"That's what I come to work for every day to take that call," Diane remarked.
