Boy Saves His Baseball Coach's Life by Administering CPR, Calling 911

A 13-year-old Arizona boy has been credited with saving his baseball coach's life by administering CPR and calling paramedics when the man collapsed on the field, suffering what turned out to be a heart attack during practice.

Isaac Wenrich, a minor league baseball player with the Florence Freedom of Kentucky who coaches kids during the off-season, was running drills last month with eighth-grader Nathan Boyer in Chandler, Arizona.

The two were alone on the afternoon of March 28 when Wenrich, 26, collapsed.

"Nate knew to roll me over, he got my phone and called 911, he started CPR," Wenrich told ABC News today. "I'm beyond thankful. I think the Lord brings people in your life for crazy reasons and he just happened to put Nate in mine.

"There's not many kids out there like him." Wenrich, who has been coaching Nathan for two years, said. "He is just such a hard worker with the most amazing personality. He is such a well-rounded 13 year old.

He added: “I wouldn't be here today if he wasn't in my life."
