Man Has Heart Attack While Laying Sod In His Yard, First Responders Who Saved Him Finish The Job

Men rising to a higher level.

Read this story and regain some trust in the innate goodness of your fellow man.

A group of firefighters and paramedics in Pasco County are being praised for going “beyond the call of duty,” to help a man after he suffered a heart attack.
Gene Work was laying sod in his yard in Pasco County over the weekend when he started experiencing symptoms of a heart attack, his wife Melissa said on Facebook. 
He had already been worried about the project “as our HOA date to fine us a huge amount was getting closer,” Melissa added.
As Work faded in and out of consciousness, he was begging his wife to figure out a way to lay down the sod, “because he didn’t want it to go to waste and die,” she said.

Work was rushed to the hospital with his wife by his side while his brother-in-law, who witnessed the heart attack, stayed behind to finish the project. 
As his brother-in-law was laying down the sod, he heard the distant rumble of huge trucks on the road. 
“He turned around and saw the fire truck and ambulance had come back. He was confused and thought they were coming to check on him,” Melissa said.

Before he knew it, seven firefighters and paramedics jumped out of the vehicle, rolled up their sleeves and got to work. 
Job completed.  Work - of all kinds - well and truly done.


  1. Thank God that someone is an adult out there. These heroes deserve all the accolades they can get.

    I did notice one thing, where's the neighbors? Why aren't they helping? Oh, that's right, the neighbors are all part of the HOA that gave this guy a heart attack. So let's recap:

    The couple is in a financial bind, the wife has cancer and is scheduled for surgery, and their HOA is threatening to sue because the couple's grass wasn't perfect.

    So, in the middle of the summer, when they don't have any money and utility bills run 100 to 200 more because, well, she's SICK and probably can't handle the heat well at all(personal experience on this one,) they force this guy, who has other things like HIS WIFE'S HEALTH to worry about, to sell personal property to afford sod in order not to be fined and potentially lose his house WHILE HIS WIFE HAS CANCER and all that stress causes him to have a heart attack and in the middle of dying his worries are about the fracking SOD and the asshat HOA that is threatening to fine and sue him.

    The HOA can FOAD.

    1. Been there, done that! Would really like a little air support vectored to HOA

  2. Sorry for the flare up . Much praise and huge Thanks go out to our Hero first responders! The embers of our great country are being tended and kept alive by all those who answer the call to service. SALUTE
