Tuesday, News9's Jamie Oberg spoke with the couple they saved.

"Those boys are our guardian angels, didn't know my guardian angel would look like that, wearing cowboy hats," Carl Ault said.

From the comfort of their living room, Carl and Gayle Ault watched as the Thunder honored the two teens who they now refer to as their guardian angels in cowboys hats.

Best friends Tanner and Chaze did not expect all the attention, then the OKC Thunder called them to say the team and Devon energy were awarding them for their heroism.

"I'm just thankful we were there in time to do something about it," Chazton Tobey said.

The boys were out having fun, mudding on Shine Road in Canadian County when they found the Ault's.

"I was still digging' mud out of my ears and nose hahaha," Carl said.

Carl jokes about it now, but has no doubt he and his wife of 61 years wouldn't be here if it weren't for the boys who helped them.

"If it hadn't been for them, my feeling is I wouldn't be around to witness all this," Carl said.

Carl says things were different back in his teens, and didn't think there's as many kids doing the right things these days.

He was happy the boys are proved him wrong.

"They cared, and they were willing to help somebody that's great that's great," Carl said about the boys.

Carl and Gayle wished they could have gone to the game, and the Thunder offered, but the couple sent the grand kids instead.

They say they still have some healing to do before any big trips.
