Mark Andrews is one of the best tight ends in the NFL. The superstar caught 45 passes for 544 yards and six touchdowns for the Baltimore Ravens during the 2023 season, despite being injured mid-season and only playing in 10 regular-season games.

But his heroics just don’t come on Sundays.

This morning, Andrews came to the rescue during a medical emergency on a Southwest Airlines flight from Baltimore to Phoenix, and one of his fellow passengers took to Twitter (or X) to praise the tight-end for his quick action and willingness to help.

According to the passenger, Andrew Springs, one of their fellow passengers suffered a medical emergency during the flight, requiring oxygen to breathe and suffering from extremely low blood pressure as doctors and nurses struggled to find a strong pulse.

But Andrews happens to be a Type-1 diabetic, and recognized what could possibly be the problem.

“Could it be her blood sugar? I have a diabetic testing kit.”

Springs says Andrews offered the medical professionals his kit and helped them test her as her heart rate finally stabilized.

And then, after paramedics got the woman off the plane once it landed, Springs says that Andrews simply got off the plane, not seeking any recognition for his heroic acts.

“As he has done his whole career, he stepped up in a huge moment when people needed him most.”

Major respect to Mark Andrews. And let’s hope everything is ok with the woman and that she’s able to fully recover from the scary episode.
