BAYTON, Texas — Firefighters from Bayton, Texas, responded to a 911 call on Tuesday for a man who suffered a heart attack while mowing his lawn, according to a statement released by the City of Bayton on its Facebook page.

After taking the man to a hospital, members of Bayton Fire Department's Station 4, A-Shift returned to the man's home to finish mowing his lawn. They then put the lawnmower away and locked the garage.

They also left behind a note with comforting words for the victim's wife. "We felt bad that your husband didn't get to finish the yard," the firefighters said. The firefighters also let the woman know they would be there for her in the future.
