When you witness a medical emergency, the first reaction you have is immediately wanting to help. But as the passengers of this one Delta Airlines flight can attest to, help can arrive in many different ways. In their case, it came in the form of one very famous passenger onboard, who had a special way of lending a hand in mind.
When one of the passengers suddenly had heart problems and fell unconscious, everyone on the airplane jumped to his aid. In a Facebook post detailing the events of the flight, Richard Gotti proudly remarked, "I watched strangers from all over the world and every ethnicity come to the help of this man for over an hour!" This aid came in the form of giving "chest compressions, starting an IV, helping breathe life into this man, [and] praying." One man who offered his prayers just happened to be former NFL quarterback, Tim Tebow.

The family of the unconscious man was without a doubt experiencing one of the saddest and scariest moments of their lives, but it was a great comfort to have such a humble yet passionate man leading the prayers for them. Richard said, "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."
