Friendly firefighters did their utmost when they had finished mowing the lawn of an older man after he had become unconscious.
Jo Ann Weeks from Gresham, Oregon, feared the worst when she saw her husband, Stephen Weeks Sr., face down on the lawn as if he were dead.
She rushed to check on him, found him dizzy and felt & # 39; dizzy & # 39; before she called her son and 911.
On the spot, the Gresham fire brigade arrived in an ambulance urgently to the hospital, but not before he asked for one favor.

According to Jo Ann, her husband joked as she was being driven away on a stretcher: "Well, I hope you guys hang around and mow my lawn."
The fire brigade laughed at it like a joke, but when the wife and son packed their things to take them to Stephen in the hospital, they heard a motorcycle.
Jo Ann told KPTV: & # 39; I got my bag and stuff, and I heard the lawn mower start and thought they should put it away.
& # 39; He was mowing our lawn and I couldn't believe he would, those guys are unreal.
& # 39; I just love that they care so much about people.
& # 39; I am just thankful that they care so much about people. & # 39;
