When Baystown, TX firefighters responded to an emergency call from a woman whose husband was suffering a heart attack, they rushed him to the hospital. They didn’t just end their act of heroism there, though.
John McCormick had a history of heart trouble and suffered another cardiac issue while attempting to mow his front lawn. After reviving the 65-year-old and following the ambulance to the hospital, the men of Station 4 decided their job wasn’t done and returned back to the home. There, they picked up where McCormick had left off.
A neighbor snapped this photo of Blake Steffenauer finishing the job.
They also left this note expressing their sympathy and offering any further help McCormick’s wife might need.
Unfortunately, McCormick passed away in the hospital, but this simple act of kindness made it so his wife at least didn’t have to worry about coming home to an unfinished lawn causing her more sadness as a vivid reminder.
