We’ve caught up with the mystery hero who helped save the life of a teenager in Sterling Heights.

Susan Pendygraft and her fiancé stopped for breakfast at the country cabin restaurant. That’s when they noticed 15-year-old Robert Brown III slumped over.

Susan called 911 and then started performing CPR until first responders arrived.

She works for Bank of America and was just recertified to administer CPR in July.

We talked to Robert and his dad on 7 Action News at 6pm.

Since the restaurant drama, the teen has been diagnosed with the same heart defect that took his mom's life.

The Brown's want to meet Susan and thank her for being Robert’s guardian angel.
