Tim Tebow prays, aids ill fan after Arizona baseball game

Man in his 40s was having a seizure

PHOENIX, Ariz. – After playing in his Arizona Fall League debut, former Florida Gators quarterback Tim Tebow aided a baseball fan who had a seizure. 

The Phoenix Fire Department said a man in his 40s was having a seizure Tuesday at Camelback Ranch, the spring training home to two major league teams.

Azcentral reported Tebow was signing autographs after the game when a man fell ill in the stands. 

The man who fell was convulsing and foaming at the mouth when first responders began to administer care to him, ABC 15 reports. At one point, the man went limp, and Tebow reached over, put his hand on the man and said a prayer. 

The 2007 Heisman Trophy winner at Florida also talked to the man about Georgia football, azcentral reported.

The Phoenix Fire Department said the man was taken to an emergency room. No more details were provided on his condition.
