Houston, TX Firefighter saves man's life
What Firefighters Did After Saving Man Having Heart Attack Will Fill You with Joy
Firefighters are some of the most fearless individuals in the world, but did you know they can also be some of thekindest?
First responders in Spring Hill, FL were called to the home of 65-year-old Ralph McCrory after the man told his wife he thought he was having a heart attack. McCrory had been mowing the lawn on a hot summer day when he began to experience symptoms of a heart attack. He rushed to tell his wife, who then called for help.
The man was then taken to the hospital by a rescue team, where he is now being tested and possibly awaiting heart surgery, according to ABC News.
When McCrory was safe with the rescue crew, a few firefighters stayed behind to help with the partially cut lawn, going above and beyond their line of duty, and thus making our hearts swoon even more for them.
Apparently it took McCrory four days to mow his lawn and, "he had to do it in pieces because of his health condition," Hernando County Fire Rescue Assistant Chief Kevin Carroll told ABC News. "In Florida this time of year, with the rain, it's time to start over again mowing your lawn after four days."
Carroll went on to say that the firefighters asked his wife if they could help with the lawn and that it took them about 30 minutes to cut the two-foot tall grass growing in the yard.
Jacob Shipp, one of their neighbors, was so moved by their act of kindness that he took pictures of the whole experience and posted them on Facebook.
"I really wanted to get something positive in the news, especially concerning first responders," Shipp said. "I have both police and fire in my immediate family and know how all of the negative stories lately can affect morale both in the workplace and in the community."
And these selfless firefighters were so humble about their work that their supervisor, Carroll, didn't even hear about it until someone called him in the hopes of bringing lunch to the kind men for their good deed.
"These guys weren't looking to be recognized, this is just what the people in this profession do," Carroll said. "Our folks, and not just our folks, public safety individuals around the country, they do this kind of stuff for people. It might be making a sandwich for a diabetic whose sugar is low, taking out trash or fixing a tire. They do this all the time and rarely, rarely ever get recognized."
But thanks to Shipp, the whole world can appreciate the kind of things our public servants do when we're not looking.
