Tim Tebow came to the aid of a fellow passenger suffering an apparent mid-flight heart attack.
In a scene sounding like it could have come straight out of a movie, a Delta Airlines flight from Atlanta, Georgia to Phoenix, Arizona took a scary turn when a male passenger appeared to suffer heart problems, then fell unconscious.
Fellow passenger Richard V. Gotti took to Facebook after the plane landed to describe the terrifying, but heartwarming incident. <p> “I watched strangers from all over the world and every ethnicity come to the help of this man for over an hour!” wrote Gotti. “Whether it was chest compressions, starting an IV, helping breathe life into this man, or praying everyone helped!”
Gotti continued that despite multiple failed attempts to revive the passenger with CPR and an automated defibrillator, no one gave up.
“Then all of a sudden, I observed a guy walking down the aisle. That guy was Tim Tebow,” he added in regard to the former NFL quarterback. “He met with the family as they cried on his shoulder! I watched Tim pray with the entire section of the plane for this man. He made a stand for God in a difficult situation. The plane landed in Phoenix and that was the first time they got a pulse back!”
According to People, Tebow then escorted the family to the hospital, where the 60-something male sadly died.
Tebow has frequently spoken about his faith and has preached to groups throughout the U.S. and abroad.
