When lightning struck an 18-year-old Colorado man, his girlfriend took action and knew how to save him.

Juliette and Isaiah were camping Saturday near Denver when the lightning storm struck.

Juliette found her boyfriend face down on the ground without a pulse.

After one round of CPR, Juliette says he started gasping, then stopped breathing. After a second round, he was doing OK.

"I was going to die. She brought me back. I was going to die again. She brought me back," Isaiah said.

"His family started calling him 'Flash.' Everyone we've talked to is asking what's his new superpower," Juliette said.

The only thing left behind from the bolt is an entry mark on his neck and a lot of sore muscles.

Juliette calls it a miracle recovery. She had taken a CPR class only a month prior.
