Helping hands: A firefighter finishes mowing the lawn of a Texan woman's house on Tuesday after he husband died of a heart attack

In a huge act of kindness, the firefighters of Bayton, Texas finished mowing the lawn for a wife whose husband had collapsed and died of a heart attack half way through the job. On Tuesday, paramedics responded to a 911 call for a man who fell ill while doing the chore. However, after they had taken the man to hospital firefighters returned and began to mow the lawn and when they had finished they put the lawnmower away and locked up the garage.

    Surprised the cops didn’t show up and arrest them for trespassing, and then beat the shit outta them.

    (yeah, I’m an ass)

    No good deed goes unpunished. If this happened any place but Texas, there’d be a lawsuit pending.

    Let’s get the name of the place right, however.
    Its Baytown, Texas. Fairly close to Houston.
    The best part is their Chamber of Commerce slogan.
    “Where oil and water really do mix”
