Man Was Taken by Emergency Responders to the Hospital. When His Family Returned Home, This Note Was Waiting for Them
WARNING: If you have a heart, this story will most definitely get some tears from you. A man was mowing his lawn when his family realized that he needed emergency services- NOW. He was suffering a heart attack. What happened next is unbelievable:
The firefighters followed the medics to the hospital, per normal operating procedure — but it’s what they did next that has them in the media spotlight.
Baytown’s Engine 4 decided to head back to the McCormick home and finish the job he started. The team mowed the rest of the man’s lawn.
According to KHOU, the firefighters even mowed the backyard, locked the garage and put the padlock’s key in the mailbox.
They then left a handwritten note to the family.
“We felt bad that your husband didn’t get to finish the yard, so we did. We noticed the padlock to the garage was unlocked so we locked it and placed your key in the mailbox,” the note said. “We are very sorry that your husband became ill, we hope he has a speedy recovery.”
“Let us know if there is anything we can do to help you out,” it read.
This is proof positive that there are still some good people left in the world. In a time when no one helps their neighbor, and everyone looks the other way, these Firefighters chose the path of good and right. Not for glory, not for fame, not even for a thank you. They saw a person who needed help and they chose to act instead of ignore. Sadly, Mr. McCormick, a veteran of the US Air Force, passed 2 days after receiving medical treatment. This small act of kindness will touch those in his family for year to come, and I am sure John would have done the same. Rest in peace, Mr. McCormick.
