An Elko man is calling a teen a guardian angel for helping him after an accident.

Kurt Boyden was critically hurt driving to work on a rural Scott County road last month.

Taylor Olin, a senior at Lakeville South High School, saw the accident. Olin wrapped Boyden's head, which was severely bleeding, and stayed with him until paramedics arrived.

Olin hopes to one day become a paramedic.
