Childhood friends Owen, Waylon, Miles, Jonah and Noah were enjoying the afternoon at the Santa Rita Skate Park in Tucson, Arizona when things went horribly wrong.
One of the boys glanced over by the park's bathroom and saw something terrifying and called out to his friends.
Lying by herself near the restroom was a woman, who, according the boys, seemed to be lifeless. Without hesitation, the group ran over to the woman to see what was the matter.
Owen shared what happened next with Tucson News Now.
"She looked like a zombie. She was really skinny....
Her homeless friend walked out of the stall at the time. She was obviously unaware that she just fell over. We immediately knew it was serious."
Owen immediately began CPR while his friends maintained the growing, panicked crowd, checked for vitals and called 9-1-1. None of them let fear took over - the boys knew they were the woman's only chance at survival.

The boys determined that the woman's pulse was weak and her breathing was sporadic. Owen kept up the chest compressions while the woman's friend assisted with mouth-to-mouth.
The brave young man told Tucson News Now that he didn't think his CPR was going to be enough to revive the dying woman.
"I thought I am probably not going to succeed in this."
But Owen did succeed! Five minutes into CPR, the woman's breathing steadied and her pulse was strong. Paramedics placed her in the back of an ambulance and she was rushed to a local hospital.
Although they'll never know who the woman was, or if she ever made it out of the hospital, the boys believe they did give her the chance to survive!

The day the boys returned to school, Owen approached his principal and asked if every student could be taught the life-saving technique. The principal agreed and now hundreds of Tucson student will be ready in a life-or-death situation!
