The Baltimore Ravens on Thursday said that one of their players helped save a woman’s life mid-flight.
Ravens tight end Mark Andrews was flying home to Phoenix via Southwest Monday morning. During the flight, a fellow passenger had a medical emergency, the Ravens said.
Another passenger said that the woman was having a hard time breathing and her pulse was weak, the team said.
“The doctor and nurse attending to her couldn’t find a strong pulse, her blood pressure was extremely low, and required oxygen to breathe,” Springs said on X, according to WBAL. That was when Andrews got up and asked, “Could it be her blood sugar? I have a diabetic testing kit.”
Andrews reportedly lives with Type 1 diabetes, according to the news outlet.
“In addition to the fast-acting flight attendants, the real heroes, are the nurse and doctor who also happened to be on the place. Thankfully they were able to provide the woman the quick assistance she needed,” Andrews said in a statement that the Ravens posted on their X.
