In a story posted to Facebook that’s been shared over 20,000 times, there was a medical emergency onboard Delta flight DL1772 from Atlanta to Phoenix.
An older gentleman began having what appeared to be heart problems, and he went unconscious.
…I listened to shock after shock from the AED machine and still no pulse. No one gave up.
…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.
Tim Tebow‘s not a doctor, but he is apparently a decent guy and famous enough that people care. And he sat with the family “as they cried on his shoulder” and prayed with those so inclined.
As the plane landed, the man’s pulse came back. Tebow accompanied the man’s wife to the hospital.
The story was posted to Facebook yesterday, but it’s not clear that it was yesterday’s flight.
Delta has confirmed the medical emergency but doesn’t comment on the names of passengers onboard a specific flight. Tebow hasn’t commented on the incident, however other contemporaneous social media accounts apparently place Tebow on the flight.
