ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - When Susan Torres lost her purse during a concert at Isleta Amphitheater, she assumed it was gone for good.


“I had my cell phone, I had my wallet, my cash, I had my credit cards, I had my car keys any my house keys and I kind of panicked and I wasn’t sure what I was going to do," Torres said.

Susan’s friend, Sandra McCoy, called Susan’s phone and another concertgoer answered, saying they had the purse.

"We spent the next 45 minutes, or about, because we couldn't find each other in the parking lot because it was crazy. And then we just got it back," McCoy said.

The group of teenagers who found her purse snapped a selfie on Torres’ phone before returning it.

Torres posted the picture on Facebook and was able to connect with the teenagers.

"I was going to take them out and give them lunch and do a gift card, but the overwhelming response from people, family and friends, the amount of shares and comments we got on Facebook were just so amazing. Everybody felt so good about this story and I wanted to do something more," Torres said.

Torres decided to Pay it 4ward.
