It started out as an ordinary day for students from Huntingtown High School in Calvert County as they were on their way to class Friday morning. But as they looked out the windows of their school bus, they saw a man lying face down on the ground in the snow holding his dog on a leash.

Four of the students jumped off the bus and rushed to his aid. Two of them are training as volunteer firefighters and administered CPR.

They went through the man's pockets looking for identification and eventually found a phone number on his dog's tag to call relatives.

Paramedics on an arriving ambulance took over and rushed the man to the hospital.

He is back at home now, but invited the students over to shake their hands and thank them for saving his life.
