Tim Tebow Leads Airline Passengers In Prayer When Man Has Heart Attack
Say what you want about Tim Tebow, but his religious faith isn't an act. In a time when so many armchair Christniks go to church on Sunday and then act like pirates the rest of the week, Tebow keeps the faith 24/7, and doesn't even take time off to read a magazine on an airline flight.
Tebow was traveling from Atlanta to Phoenix on a Delta flight on Sunday when a man in his 60s appeared to be having a heart attack. Not only did the quarterback jump in to comfort the man and his family, but he led many of the passengers in prayer.
If the following is to be believed, Tebow is some kind of saint. Or at least saintish.
"Then all of a sudden I saw a guy walk down the aisle. That guy was Tim Tebow. He met with the family and they cried on his shoulder! I watched Tebow 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."
The inference being what, that prayer made the difference? That Tebow raised him from the dead? It's hard to read between the lines here because the point of the story seems to be more that people stood up for religion than it does about the actual victim. But I could be wrong.
Anyway, here's more of what Tebow did, according to People Magazine:
As well as Tebowing the Flight 1772, the Heisman Trophy winner also helped the family deplane, picked up their luggage and went with them to the hospital, where he waited until they got the news that the man had passed away.
ABC News also confirmed that the man later died at the hospital. But Tebow, wow. The guy is no phony.
