When a call came in about a man experiencing chest pains, a pair of Alabama firefighters responded to the call. The Birmingham Fire and Rescue Service Department sent them to the home of a 30-year military vet who was having chest pains while mowing his lawn.
A Facebook post from the department explains that after taking the man to the hospital, Firefighter/Paramedic Tommy Carter and Firefighter Timothy Kennedy went back to his home and finished the yard work the veteran started.
"I could tell that he was a kind, gentle, genuine person, and sometimes you meet people like that during this job and they touch your heart," Carter says. "That makes the decision even easier when you meet someone that has that kind of personality."
