Tim Tebow is testing out his skills in the minor leagues, but it’s his interaction with a fan that’s making headlines.

As Tebow greeted fans and media and signed autographs after the game, a fan had an epileptic seizure and the athlete stepped into help.

Tim stayed with the man until the paramedics arrived.
Tebow signing autographs. Fan has what looks like seizure. Not moving. Tebow puts hand on him and says a prayer. Man breathes. WOW.

According to reports, the man said that he was a University of Georgia fan, which is a rival to Tebow’s alma mater, the University of Florida.
“You’re a Bulldog? You’re kidding me,’’ Tebow reportedly responded. “Don’t even know how to respond to that.’’
This isn’t the first time Tebow’s helped someone in a difficult situation. Earlier this year while on a plane, he prayed with the family of a man who was suffering heart issues.
“I observed a guy walking down the aisle,” Richard V. Gotti, another passenger on the plane, recounted in a Facebook post.
“That guy was Tim Tebow. He met with the family as they cried on his shoulder! I watched Tim pray with the entire section of the plane for this man. He made a stand for God in a difficult situation.”
