Firefighters from Baytown, Texas, responded to a 911 call for a man who suffered an unfortunate heart attack while mowing his lawn. John McCormick has had a history of heart problems and other health issues. After reviving the 65-year-old and following the ambulance to the hospital, the kind men of Station 4 decided their job wasn’t done and returned back to the house.
There, they picked up where mister McCormick had left off.
When they had finished they kindly put the lawnmower away and locked up the garage. Unfortunately, McCormick passed away in the hospital. But his family told the station that their grief has been easier to deal with thanks to the random act of kindness, and that they have been getting calls from as far away as New Zealand about the good deed.
