Man Has Heart Attack While Mowing Lawn; Firefighters Finish Mowing Lawn After Saving Him

A 65-year-old Spring Hill, Florida, man suffered a heart attack while mowing his lawn last Saturday. “All of a sudden he came in and yelled, ‘I think I just had a heart attack,'” said Ralph McCrory’s wife, Dorothy. Hernando County Fire Rescue were called to the scene, and McCrory was saved. Not only that, the Firefighters finished mowing his lawn.

“Our folks have stopped many times and helped people change a tire on an automobile that had a flat,” said Kevin Carroll, Hernando Co. Fire Rescue Asst. Chief. “This is not unusual for us, but we’re very appreciative to the gentleman who actually took the photographs, that he took the time and made the effort to actually recognize these folks.”

* Sends e flowers and keg of beer and pizzas * Thank you Fireys everywhere. My neighbours had a fire, in the ceiling/roof space. As some of the Fireys were putting that out others where covering up the furniture and stuff - really reducing the clean up effort by Heaps. Just so love our Fireys.
