Former NFL star Tim Tebow was on a Delta Airlines flight from Atlanta to Phoenix on Sunday when another passenger on the plane suffered a heart attack. While members of the plane’s crew helped the passenger, Tebow decided he could help too, in a different way.

“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,” Richard Gotti wrote in a Facebook post about the incident. “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 the unidentified man was rushed to the hospital, where he later died, according to multiple reports.

Delta Air Lines spokesman Brian Kruse the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that there had been a medical emergency during the flight.
