No, this isn’t another case of ACORN voter fraud.
In Detroit on Monday an elderly couple were filling out their absentee ballots when something bizarre occurred. Ty Houston, a registered home-care nurse, observed the elderly couple at the table next to him. The wife was asking her husband questions when suddenly he became unresponsive. Alarmed, she cried for help. That’s when Houston came to their aid.
He laid the victim on the floor and checked his vitals only to find he had no heartbeat and wasn’t breathing. After performing CPR on the man, he began to breathe again. He was responsive and mentally alert, he knew both his own name and his wife’s, but his health wasn’t his first priority.
“The first question he asked was ‘Did I vote?’” Houston said. Still reeling from seeing her husband be revived from the brink of death, his wife was dumbfounded.
Houston recounted that after a few breaths, the man, who had had a tracheotomy, declared to his wife the two important things in his life were “that I love you and that I finished what I came here to do … vote.”
Once first responders arrived, the victim was taken a local hospital to be treated further. The couple were immensely grateful for Houston’s aid — especially considering he wasn’t supposed to even be there. “Originally, I was just going skip the ballot and just go to lunch that day,” Houston said.
