Former NFL quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow put his Christian faith to good use on Sunday when a passenger on Delta Flight 1772 from Atlanta to Phoenix suffered a medical emergency and passed out during the flight. Tebow, along with other passengers, sprang into action and according to one eyewitness, helped “breathe life into this man.”

According to ABC News, medical personnel met the aircraft when it landed and the man survived.

From Richard Gotti, who was allegedly on the plane and witnessed the whole thing, wrote on Facebook that he:

“…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.”

Well done, everyone!
