It’s official: Tebowing saves lives! Former NFL Quarterback and Christian conservative Tim Tebow was on a flight over the weekend when a fellow passenger’s heart stopped beating.
The outspoken Christian was known during his playing days for writing scripture verses on his eye black in college and inspiring the trend of “Tebowing” – dropping to one knee in prayer. Tebow went to comfort the man’s family and lead people in prayer, and the man miraculously was revived!
Passengers on a Delta flight were shocked to see former NFL star Tim Tebow rush to offer aid to a man who suffered a medical emergency on the plane.
Tebow was on the flight from Atlanta to Phoenix when a passenger appeared to have heart problems and went unconscious.
Other passengers and crew members helped the man until the plane landed, including Tebow, who reportedly moved from his first class seat to the back of the plane, according to a Facebook post by Richard V Gotti.
Tebow then started praying with the man’s wife and other passengers as the plane landed.
Gotti shared the story of Tebow’s actions saying that after the man went unconscious he ‘watched strangers from all over the world and every ethnicity come to the help of this man for over an hour’!

The text of passenger Richard V Gott’s Facebook post says:
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!
Continued prayers for this family! Maybe some extra Tebowing is in order.
