A Tampa woman is being hailed as a hero for saving the life of a fellow triathlete, and promptly finished the same race. Not a shabby day if you ask me.

Teresa McCoy saw two officers huddled over a man during the race. The officers thought the man might be having a seizure. McCoy, who’s a nurse, checked for a pulse and couldn’t feel one. The 37-year-old began CPR and called for a defibrillator. McCoy says the man came to as soon as they used the defibrillator. The gentleman was put in an ambulance and sent to the hospital where he is said to be doing fine. As one would usually do, McCoy got back on her bike and completed the Triathlon. That is how you finish a race in style.

  • Now, instead of giving Hussein Obama a Nobel Peace Prize for doing nothing, give this woman a day in her honor and also give her an honorary win in the race.

    What really blows me away is that I’m the only comment on this story. Where are people’s priorities?

      What the hell does Obama have to do with this story? Where are YOUR priorities? Couldn’t you just say that the woman was amazing without bringing your political viewpoints into the story? UGH.

    Actually, as an RN, she is legally and ethically obligated to render aid. However, getting back on her bike and finishing the race after an emotionally and physically draining act like that is one heck of an accomplishment.
