Collapsed Minnesota Man Wears ‘Jesus Saves’ Bib During Race, Saved by Guy Named Jesus

Twenty-five-year-old Tyler Moon was running in the Medtronic TC 10 Mile race in Minneapolis earlier this month as part of the Twin Cities Marathon Weekend and chose to wear a bib that had the phrase “Jesus Saves” on it.

When Moon hit somewhere around mile 8 of the race route, he suffered a ventricular tachycardia, which caused him to experience a heart attack and fall, causing a concussion and fractured facial bones.

The Pioneer Press reported that one of the runners behind him, a certified registered nurse anesthetist who’s knowledgeable in CPR, helped to rescue Moon — his name? Jesus Bueno. He tended to the injured runner until Moon was taken to a nearby hospital.

According to The Christian Post, Moon said that while he was originally going to have his name on the bib, he then “had a thought that I should change that to something that should be a profession of faith.” He said he found it “pretty wild,” adding it was funny “how God takes that and blows it up and sends it out to the whole world.”
