It was last September when Terrence Lyman and John Mallard were going about their workday when a co-worker collapsed with a heart attack.
The two men ran down the hall, performed CPR and used a defibrillator to save the life of Russ Childress, a maintenance supervisor.
Mallard said he had just taken a CPR course six weeks earlier and never thought he'd need the skills.
"Over the loudspeaker system came the call," he said. "When I arrived there, unfortunately Russ was not in a good position. The training just took over."
Both men got plaques, gifts and a thunderous standing ovation.
Lyman says he just reacted naturally and helped a friend. He said all the praise was overwhelming.
"I didn't expect this much. I didn't expect all these people. I'm touched. I really am touched," he said.
Childress was hospitalized and had a long recovery. He's back at work now and can't thank his colleagues enough for what they did.
"Thank you. That's the big quandry I have. How do you tell somebody 'thank you' for giving you a second chance at life?" he said.
Childress' grateful family was also on hand and spent the day thanking both men again and again!
