Christian football star Tim Tebow is being hailed as a hero after coming to the aid of a passenger on a recent airline flight who lost consciousness and was presumed dead.
Breitbart is reporting on the incident which took place on Delta Airlines Flight Number 1772 from Atlanta to Phoenix when an elderly passenger with heart problems fell unconscious.
What happened next is explained in the Facebook post of Richard V. Gotti, a passenger on the plane and an eyewitness to the events:
“. . . 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 compression, 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!”
KGET’s Lina Washington says she was told that after the plane landed, Tebow transported the wife to the hospital.
This incredible story proves that the world is full of good people who are willing to help others in a time of crisis – and faith in God really does make miracles happen!
