Teens Saved From Drowning In Freezing Water By Two Models

Six teenagers fell into ice-cold water when they walked onto the ice in NYC’s Central Park and attempted to take a selfie on Monday night.

Fortunately, they were rescued shortly after by two men who just happened to be skateboarding by.

Even better, those two men–Ethan Turnbull and Jonas Bennett–happened to be ridiculously hot models.

“We just came around the hill and I could see them standing on the ice… as we came back around, I heard them screaming by that stage, and when we got there they were well submerged in the water,” Turnbull explained in an Instagram video according to Buzzfeed.

@ethanturnbull and I tonight went out to Skateboard around Central Park. Passing a frozen lake we saw a group of 8 kids go though the ice. We ran over and immediately we're put in the toughest situation I think We will have to go through. 8 kids screaming for help being pulled down by each other, soaking backpacks and huge jackets. I had to make a decision to get in the middle of that or watch them drown. When I got about waist deep two of the kids jumped on top of me and pulled me under. I had to pick them both up and throw them to Ethan. I then grabbed a ladder and pulled the next 2 in. Behind them were two lifeless bodies that I knew I couldn't get too. I swam out and grabbed the last two guys and was able to get them to shore and keep them alive. I feel humbled and grateful that God called me to be there tonight, I'm still shaking and am completely shook by what I experienced, but I'm alive and so are 8 other kids who got very lucky tonight.

While the pair were applauded for their actions, Bennett denied that they were heroes and said they were simply in the right place at the right time.
