A group of firefighters in Fort Lauderdale, Florida went above the call of duty to help an 80-year-old man. A post shared on Facebook details how they not only treat the man after he fainted but also helped finish his work.

Fort Lauderdale Fire Rescue shared the post on their Facebook page. “Monday morning Fort Lauderdale Fire Rescue Station 47 was dispatched to a pass out,” says the post.

When they reached, they discovered that an 80-year-old army veteran had suffered heat exhaustion while working in his yard. The rescue team promptly began to help him.

“They immediately treated the man and cooled him off,” says the post.

However, they went a step ahead to help. “Once his medical emergency was over the crew stepped in and finished cutting his grass!” the post says further.

They also shared a video from the incident in the post:
