Bride-to-be Becomes a Hero

An engagement photo shoot in Pennsylvania comes to an abrupt end when the bride-to-be suddenly becomes a hero.

Becki Salmon and her fiancé Matt Werner were posing for engagement photos when a little boy playing in the background wanders too far into the creek.

Salmon jumped to action.

"His head went back, he was bobbing up and down," she says. "I knew that he was going under. If I had had my wedding dress on that day that's what I would have been in that water."

Salmon is a trained lifeguard and paramedic. Because of her instinct, she never thought twice.

"She's been very humble through this process and she's not wanted to take the credit that she deserves but she definitely deserves the recognition," says Werner.
