Tim Tebow Consoled Some Guy On An Airplane And A Fellow Passenger Suddenly Thinks He’s God Or Something

Tim Tebow and Riley Cooper recorded a message to a young fan before he underwent brain surgery.

Former NFL bust quarterback Tim Tebow is known for having a strong faith—which I’m totally cool with. Nothing wrong with giving some love to the big guy upstairs, you know? But this story about him on a flight from Atlanta to Phoenix this weekend will make you roll your eyes and throw your hands up in disgust, because the dude’s not a saint, guys.


According to a fellow passenger, an older man was unresponsive on the flight, so Tebow went to console him and his family, praying over him—which, of course, led to the man being resurrected. Here’s the Facebook post detailing the incident:

I have to share this story! I was traveling on Delta Airlines Flight Number 1772 from Atlanta, Georgia to Phoenix, Arizona when there was a medical emergency on board. An older gentleman began having what appeared to be heart problems, and he went unconscious. I watched strangers from all over the world and every ethnicity come to the help of this man for over an hour! Whether it was chest compressions, starting an IV, helping breathe life into this man, or praying everyone helped! I listened to shock after shock from the AED machine and still no pulse. No one gave up. I observed people praying and lifting this man up to the Lord in a way that I’ve never seen before. 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. 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 that was the first time they got a pulse back! Please share this with your friends! Pray for this man and his family, and also thank God that we still have people of faith who in times of difficulty look to the Lord!

The story was confirmed by both Tebow’s reps and Delta, so, apparently it happened.

Look, I’m not saying miracles don’t happen—they obviously do. But you’re telling me that Tim Tebow doesn’t know how to throw a football properly, yet he can bring a man back to life? I’m a little skeptical.
