Jets trainers save life on way to NFL Scouting Combine


As the New York Jets training staff hopped on a plane to head out to Indianapolis for the 2014 NFL Scouting Combine, it ended up being one of the plane’s passengers lucky day.

According to Darryl Slater of the Newark Star-Ledger, two Jets assistant trainers, Josh Koch and Dave Zuffelato, were able to help save a life on the plane when an elderly woman was in distress after the doors on the plane had closed.

We’re conditioned to help people,” Zuffelato said. “When the situation arose, the doctor, Josh and I did our best to help.”

The report says that the two trainers, along with a doctor on board, rushed to the woman’s side, got her off the plane and performed CPR until an ambulance was able to arrive.

Kudos to the the men who were there to help for stepping up and lending a hand when someone needed it the most.
