“So, before the race, my name was originally on the bib,” Moon told Fox News. “One day I got a thought — I thought it was from God and that it should be a profession of faith — and changed it to ‘Jesus Saves,’ so that another runner or someone in the audience would see it … that Jesus saves us for eternity.”
About 8 miles into the race Tyler Moon collapsed, went into cardiac arrest, got a concussion and broke bones in his face.
Thankfully, a runner named Jesus “Jesse” Bueno, a Lakeville registered nurse anesthetist, was right behind him and quickly helped save his life, alongside another colleague and other medical professionals, who performed chest compressions and assisted his breathing until the ambulance arrived.
He credits God for placing all those people there at the right time “for his glory”.
