Ex-NFL quarterback Tim Tebow led on-board prayer as flight attendants performed CPR on a patient in cardiac arrest.

This puts Tebow one throw closer to realizing his destiny of becoming a paramedic.

[Scene – Emergency Department Trauma Bay]

Dr. Elway: Great save Medic Tebow. You pulled another patient from the jaws of defeat. How did you do it?

Medic Tebow: Thanks Doc. We were called for a patient with difficulty breathing so I immediately gave the patient some food to see if he could chew something.

Dr. Elway: Yeah, he looks like a guy that really likes to eat.

Medic Tebow: Well I didn’t want to force anything in there. I noticed he was wearing a watch so I figured he might have seizures so we gave him some of that valium.

That seemed to do the trick because his breathing really decreased.
