      Austin Rucks, Preston Mosley, and Austin Parrish swam through rapid waters to take Cole to safety.

      "I'm the kind of person that if someone needs help I will pretty much go out of my way to help them," Austin Rucks said.

      The three boys spent their entire day giving a helping hand to people in the community.

      Cole says she appreciates the help.

      The teenagers went to Cole's home Sunday to make sure she is still doing well.

      They gave Cole their phone numbers and plan to help her again when she needs assistance.
