A big component of emergency response is timing. First responders typically have a limited time window when responding to a life or death situation. Obviously, getting to the scene is priority one and often burns much of the golden time window.
In some cases though, first responders happen to be in the right place at the right time.
In this case, Missouri firefighters were conducting an ice rescue drill when the the deputy chief noticed two teenagers running across the ice. Moments later, they fell into the frigid water.
The firefighters immediately kicked into rescue mode and got to work. The two teens were safely brought back to shore though they were in the early stages of hypothermia. Both boys are respected to make a full recovery thanks to the firefighters quick, skilled response.
