During a Southwest Airlines flight from Baltimore to Phoenix, Baltimore Ravens tight end Mark Andrews found himself in an unexpected role as he assisted a woman in distress. The Ravens confirmed Andrews’ involvement, highlighting his humble response and gratitude towards fellow passengers who aided in the situation.
The incident, recounted by Andrew Springs, who was also on the flight, unfolded when a woman began experiencing health issues mid-air. Springs, a Baltimore native, described the tense atmosphere as passengers rallied to help. While a nurse and doctor onboard provided initial assistance, it was Andrews who surprised everyone with his preparedness.
Andrews, who quietly carries a diabetic test kit due to his own Type 1 diabetes, offered to check the woman’s blood sugar levels. Springs, initially unaware of Andrews’ identity, praised the football star’s quick thinking and selflessness in the face of adversity.
After the flight, Andrews quietly exited the scene, but not before expressing appreciation for the medical personnel and flight attendants who assisted. The woman received further care upon landing in Phoenix, thanks to the prompt action taken during the flight.
Andrews’ involvement in the emergency underscores his commitment to helping others, even amidst his own health challenges. His actions serve as a reminder of the impact individuals can make in critical situations, regardless of their background or profession.
