Photographer captures bride-to-be saving boy during engagement photo shoot

What started as romantic photo shoot turned into a life-saving rescue for one engaged couple in Pennsylvania.

Becki Salmon and Matt Werner were posing for their engagement photos when a little boy playing in the background fell into a nearby creek.

Salmon immediately jumped after him.

"He was obviously struggling to get back to the surface, his head went back and he was bobbing up and down," Salmon told ABC News. "I knew he was going under.

Salmon said the water was almost over her head when she got to him. She hoisted him over her shoulder and carried back to land.  The entire incident was captured by the couple's photographer, Ken Beerger.

It seems that Salmon, a trained lifeguard and paramedic, was at the right place at the right time.
