WAUWATOSA-Four members of the Tosa West Soccer team are now getting credit for helping rescue a woman earlier this week.

They didn't leave their names at the scene, but the rescued mom tracked them down to thank them in person on Friday.

"They're my angels," Nicole Kastner told CBS 58 News at the reunion at Wauwatosa West High School Friday.

It was the first time they saw each other since the emergency.

Kastner was picking up her son from the babysitter near 101st and North when she collapsed. She says the last thing she remembers was buckling her son into the car.

The soccer players were passing by the area around the same time and saw Kastner lying in the street.

Like a critical play in a game, each took a certain position. One called 9-11, one went to get his parents, another comforted the woman while another calmed down her crying son.

Paramedics arrived and took her to the hospital. She suffered a seizure like spill associated with an illness she tells us she's battled since she was 17.

Coach Ryan Bailey couldn't be prouder. "Their actions speak for themselves."

So here is the story of Alex Wimmer, brothers Nick and Alex Stanisic, and Sage Schram. Please watch the video because they tell it best themselves.
