Former Florida quarterback Tim Tebow is receiving praise after reportedly helping save a man’s life following a heart attack on a Delta flight Sunday.
Richard V. Gotti shared a picture and a message to Delta’s Facebook page describing an incident he witnessed while traveling from Atlanta to Phoenix.
ABC News confirmed that Tebow, who is currently an analyst for SEC Country, was on board the flight, but Tebow hasn’t confirmed the incident himself.
Delta spokesperson Brian Kruse confirmed to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that there had been a medical emergency on board, and said that paramedics greeted the plane to ensure the passenger received immediate care.
“We can’t say enough about the Delta professionals who care for our customers every day,” Kruse said, “and we are grateful to our customers who are so often quick to extend kindness and care to one another.”
Unfortunately, while the post said “the man got a pulse back”, People Magazine confirmed he later died in a hospital.
If you had any question whether Tebow is willing to act when others are in need, this should resolve it.
