Tony, who is a land mower by profession, was on his way to work when he saw a person having a seizure inside a car.

Not all heroes wear capes, this statement is apt for a Florida man named Tony Neil who saved a person's life with his quick actions. Tony, who is a land mower by profession, was on his way to work when he saw a person having a seizure inside a car. The car was still in motion and Tony left everything to stop it. However, he failed to stop it along and in the process, the vehicle ran over his foot but thankfully he was wearing his steel boots so, no serious damage was done to him.

Eventually, the car came to halt at a neighbours' lawn, but the windows were up, and the doors were locked. The driver looked in terrible shape and required immediate help. Tony tried to get help as he screamed and begged other neighbours for help but to his dismay, got a cold shoulder. The owner of the house where the car had stopped yelled back at Tony and asked him to get off his lawn and take the man somewhere else to ‘die’.

While the response from others was heartbreaking, Tony did not deter from his mission to save the person’s life. He realized that he knew the house of the person inside the car and ran to his family to tell them about the incident. Soon, 911 was called and the man was taken to hospital

Sharing the details of the incident, Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office posted a picture of Tony on their Facebook page.
