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.
A man in the aisle seat popped up, “Could it be her blood sugar? I have a diabetic testing kit.”
