The America Red Cross will be honoring the teen who was able to revive her boyfriend last summer in the Boulder County foothills.

Juliette Moore will be recognized Friday at the American Red Cross Heroes Soiree at Wings Over the Rockies, 7711 E. Academy Blvd., in Denver.

Moore and her boyfriend, Isaiah Cormier, were camping in Ruby Gulch last July when Cormier was struck by lightning. Moore began administering CPR and called for help from a nearby camper who called 911.

Cormier was taken to the hospital but was released two days later with minimal damage.

“Things almost turned deadly when Moore found her boyfriend face down on the ground with no pulse,” the Red Cross wrote in a news release. “Thanks to her quick thinking, Moore reacted and saved Cormier‘s life.”

Moore said she learned CPR from a Red Cross class, and said it was the reason she was able to instantly react.

“I couldn‘t imagine if I had seen him and not (known what to do),” Moore told the Camera in 2018. “Time is of the essence when you need to do CPR.”

Proceeds from the event will benefit local Red Cross services. For more information visit .
