One incredible aspect of Military members and First Responders is that they don’t turn off their initiative and bias for action just because they are off duty. If something happens on their day off and they are able to jump in, they rarely hesitate.
Firefighter Josh Owens from Virginia demonstrated this fact while attending his sons flag football game Sunday morning.
Owen and family were cheering on his son when a gunfight broke out on the sidelines. Josh quickly ushered his family to safety before running to see if anyone needed help.
Despite the fact that there was still an active threat of an unknown shooter, Owens worked to control the bleeding of the most critically injured victim. He was successful in his attempts and the victim was rushed to lifesaving emergency medical care.
