A group of firefighters and paramedics in Pasco County, Florida, are being praised for going “beyond the call of duty” after a man suffered a heart attack. That man, Gene Work, was laying sod in his yard when he started experiencing symptoms of a heart attack. As Gene faded in and out of consciousness, he was begging his wife to figure out a way to lay down the sod, “because he didn’t want it to go to waste and die.” Gene was rushed to the hospital with his wife by his side while his brother-in-law, who witnessed the heart attack, stayed behind to finish the project. As his brother-in-law was laying down the sod, he heard the distant rumble of huge trucks on the road. He turned around and saw the fire truck and ambulance had come back. Before he knew it, seven firefighters and paramedics jumped out of the vehicle, rolled up their sleeves and got to work.
