Two male models who were skateboarding in Central Park and paused to take a picture of the sunset ended up saving the lives of seven teenagers who had fallen through ice.
“It was all a matter of ‘right place at the right time’ for the two of us,” Ethan Turnbull said today on “Good Morning America.”
Turnbull, 24, was with fellow model Bennett Jonas, 23, in New York City’s Central Park Monday when, out of the corner of his eye, he spotted a group of teenagers playing on ice atop a pond.
“I said to Bennett, ‘Look, man, there’s some kids over there on the ice,’” Turnbull recalled. “Within the time it took me to say that to Bennett and look back, the ice had actually broken because they came together to take a photo.”
