Saw this and had to share: HUDSON, Fla. — Most law enforcement officials and first responders go above and beyond during calls every day, but one Florida fire rescue department did something remarkable.
On Saturday, a crew from Pasco County Fire Rescue responded to a man having a heart attack outside his Hudson home.
Gene Work suffered the massive heart attack as he rushed to lay sod in his yard with his brother-in-law. He was eager to get it done quickly, his wife, Melissa Work, wrote on Facebook, because the family's HOA warned them they had to get the grass fixed or face heavy fines.
"While he was having his heart attack, literally in and out of consciousness, he kept begging me to figure out the sod and have it put down because he didn't want it to go to waste and die," she wrote in the post. "It's ALL he kept asking about literally during a massive heart attack. LOL. I calmed him and kept saying, 'Jesus will help us. It's ok. Jesus will figure this out, babe.' "
Work's brother-in-law stayed behind at the house to try to get the work done — but there was a lot left to do.
