More than a decade ago, Ashley and Keith Baxter came across three people drifting in the middle of the ocean – one of them was lead singer of Pearl Jam, Eddie Vedder.

The Baxter’s saved their lives that day and the good deed did not go unnoticed. More than a decade later, the three that survived to tell the tale are now returning the favor.

Check out the video above for the full story of what happened that fateful day years ago and how life has come full circle for the Baxter ohana with their present-day struggle.
