With 200 Yards To Finish Line, Runner Collapses...Then Experiences Something INCREDIBLE
Marathon runner Robert McCoy lay bleeding on the ground after collapsing from exhaustion just 200 yards from the finish line. But at the end of this strength, someone was sent to lift him back up.
According to The Huffington Post, Savannah-Chatham Metro Police Department's Sgt. John Cain rushed to help the runner, but McCoy wasn't quite ready to give up.
Cain relates, “I went over to help render aid and he kept saying, ‘I’ve got to finish the race.’ I asked him if he wanted me to help him and he said yes."
With his hand clamped around the runner's arm to support him, Cain and McCoy jogged together across the finish line to finish the Rock 'N' Roll Half Marathon in Savannah, Georgia.
Of his actions, Cain was humble.
He said "I am just glad I was in a position to help (McCoy) do that. He in an inspiration to me, he is the hero in this story."
