Two teens out for some fun ran across an elderly couple stranded on this muddy road in rural Canadian County. The chance encounter saved the couples lives.

A midnight mudding trip for two friends from Davis turned into a life changing adventure. The teenage boys spotted a car stuck in a ditch on Shine Road in Canadian County.

What happened to them last weekend isn't going away from their thoughts anytime soon. The boy's never dreamed the road ahead would alter their paths so drastically.

"We were just out driving around having a good time, just not really expecting anything," 18-year-old Chazton Tobey said.

Best friends, Chazton Tobey and Tanner Mills, were just being teenage boys, out and about trying to stir up some fun.

"We were just out here having a good time," 18-year-old Tanner Mills said.

The teens who usually stay up past midnight said it was about that time when Chaze noticed a small silver car stuck up ahead.

"Just looking at how fast life can be taken away from you," Chaze said, remembering that night.

In a matter of minutes the 18-year-old's midnight mudding trip would turn them into men.

"What are we going to do? What do we do?"

The boy's saw an elderly woman inside that silver car, alone, windows down, engine off.

"She was just sitting there shaking real bad," Chaze recalled.

"We couldn't just leave her out here," Tanner said.

The two friends took off their coats and tried to get the woman into their truck, where it was warm.

"She said 'my husband had left a couple hours ago to get help,' we turned around, she wouldn't get out and that's when we saw him," Tanner said.

Face down in the mud, Tanner and Chaze thought the man on the ground next to the car was dead.

"He said 'Tanner! Come help me,' and I said 'I can't do this,'" Tanner remembered. "He was under water, face was covered in mud and water."

Tanner called 911 and together, the friends did what they could to help the couple and keep them alive.

"One would talk to him, one would talk to her and 911 and back and forth," Tanner said.

Time seemed to stand still until help finally came.

The couple was airlifted to the hospital and the boys, well, they still have the old man's shirts, but they never caught the couple's names.

"I want to meet them when they're better," Tanner said. "I hope they lived."

"When it's your time to go it's your time to go," Chaze said. "But I guess they were meant to be here, that's what the Good Lord wanted."

The friends hope to meet them again.  Until then, the teens said they're not taking a single day for granted.

The couple said they went out to an early dinner in Yukon, but the husband doesn't remember anything after that.  They both are expected to be okay.
