LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A former NFL quarterback is being recognized for his compassion.

Tim Tebow was on a flight headed from Atlanta to Phoenix on Sunday when another passenger started having a heart attack.

The man needed chest compressions and a defibrillator.

Tebow was seen consoling the family and other passengers while praying with them.

The passenger later died at the hospital.

Tebow stayed with the family as they learned the news.

A Heisman Trophy winner at the University of Florida, Tebow went on to star for the Denver Broncos, leading them to a dramatic playoff win over the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2012.
