Runner, Tyler Moon opted to have ‘Jesus Saves’ printed on his bib instead of his name.  Little did he know, he’d actually be saved by a man named Jesus.

25-year old Moon was running in a 10-mile race during the Twin Cities Marathon in Minnesota when he suddenly collapsed 8-miles in.  Doctors would later discover that Moon had an irregular heartbeat, leading him to have a heart attack during the race.  43-year old Jesus Bueno, a registered nurse, was running behind Moon when he collapsed.

Bueno tended to Moon, provided CPR, and called for medical assistance.  Eventually, paramedics arrived and were able to use a defibrillator to shock Moon’s heart back to a regular rhythm.
