When Noah challenged him to jump off the quarry, Joe recklessly agreed. But he didn’t surface for a worryingly long time…

Lucky for Joe, Debbie arrived looking for truanting Noah – and saw a lifeless Joe floating in the water.

Pulling him out as quickly as she could, she administered CPR and saved his life as the ambulance arrived.

Later at the hospital, the pair had a charged moment which ended with a kiss.
