Jeff Ecklund (left) and Neil Woodruff grasp one another in an emotional moment after Woodruff received an award Thursday at the American Red Cross Real Heroes Breakfast in Everett. Woodruff kept Ecklund's son, Daniel, alive following a tragic skateboard accident that ultimately claimed the boy's life on Sept. 5. Thanks to Woodruff applying CPR until medics arrived, Daniel Ecklund, 19, lived five more days and provided the gift of organ donation to three other people.
Read about Woodruff and other people who rose to the occasion during emergencies in Thursday's story and our photo gallery of this year's winners.
