ODESSA-  "I flagged people down and they just flew by," said Enrique Lopez Soto, who pulled over on Highway 80 Saturday, when he couldn't breathe.

"He stopped breathing, I didn't know what to do at first, I just remember asking God what do i do?" said Jesse Castillo who pulled over to help, when he saw a man lying on the ground, waving his hands in agony.

"I thank god that they stopped because I don't think I'd be here," said Soto, "He is my guardian angel, he's apart of my life, whether he likes it or not."

Today the men and their families reunited at Odessa Regional Hospital for the first time, after Soto spent a week in recovery.

"He was holding my hand, I was telling my wife, I'll never forget, he wouldn't let me go," said Castillo, a father and grandfather, who says he knew something was wrong that Saturday morning and that he felt a strong urge to help Soto.

"Maybe God sent me here for him," Castillo said, "Now we're a part of each others lives."
