The story of a couple brought together by an almost life-ending incident is captivating the internet. It happened back in October 2017, but the pair is now opening up about their shocking beginnings. Anesthesiologist Andi Traynor was on a surfing first date with Max Montgomery when he suddenly collapsed. Rushing into life-saving mode, Traynor immediately performed CPR while a nurse nearby also jumped into help, according to WABC.

Their actions allowed Montgomery the chance to get safely to the hospital, where he underwent bypass surgery the next day. Although the CPR served as their first kiss, Traynor and Montogomery have experienced many kisses since and have now been together for 10 months!
