It started as a normal second day of school for three students at Southern Utah University. Jake Probert was studying, Jared Wenn was eating lunch at home with his wife, and Ryan Fowles was on his way to class.
SUU managerial economics professor Joe Baker, 63, had just finished his noon run on Aug. 27 when he had a heart attack.
“They saved my life,” Baker said of Probert, Wenn and Fowles. “There’s no doubt about it that they saved my life.”
Probert was sitting on the second floor of the J.L. Sorenson Physical Education Building when he heard what he thought was a body fall to the ground and a university employee yell for someone to call 911.
