When Tim Tebow got onto Delta flight 1772 from Atlanta to Phoenix, he could not have predicted what would happen on that plane.
A passenger on the plane began to experience heart pains mid-air, and the passengers to his sides were quick to try and come to his aid.
Amongst those passengers was Tim Tebow, who noticed the commotion in the plane and made his way up to the situation.
The man having heart pains went unconscious, despite the efforts of the people around him to keep him awake.
Waiting to make their landing, the man’s crying family was comforted by Tim Tebow, as he prayed to God for the man, his family, and the rest of the passengers on the plane.
With a large shoulder to cry on, the man’s family awaited the plane’s landing in hopes of getting the man emergency care.
When the plane eventually landed in Phoenix, the emergency crew was able to get a pulse for the first time.
Richard Gotti was aboard the plane, and was able to provide an eye witness account of the story, as seen below.
I have to share this story!
I was traveling on Delta Airlines Flight Number 1772 from Atlanta, Georgia to Phoenix, Arizona when there was a medical emergency on board. An older gentleman began having what appeared to be heart problems, and he went unconscious. I watched strangers from all over the world and every ethnicity come to the help of this man for over an hour! Whether it was chest compressions, starting an IV, helping breathe life into this man, or praying everyone helped! I listened to shock after shock from the AED machine and still no pulse. No one gave up.
I observed people praying and lifting this man up to the Lord in a way that I’ve never seen before. The crew of Delta Airlines were amazing. They acted in a fast and professional manner! Then all of a sudden, I observed a guy walking down the aisle.
That guy was Tim Tebow.
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!
Please share this with your friends! Pray for this man and his family, and also thank God that we still have people of faith who in times of difficulty look to the Lord!
Compassion can come from all corners. It is often easy to separate the people we see on TV from the realities of our own lives, but it is refreshing to see these very celebrities showing compassion and care just as we would hope they would in a situation such as this one.
