Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nydailynews.com: “There’s an FDNY angel on his shoulder: Queens pastor praises firefighters, EMTs who saved his life at the altar”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

When he woke up in a hospital bed four days after collapsing from a heart attack in front of 200 congregants at the Amity Baptist Church, the first thing Pastor Jeffrey Thompson did was thank God.

The next thing he did was thank the FDNY for making sure he had another day to give praise to the Almighty.

“I am eternally grateful for the people in the church and for the first responders,” Thompson told the Daily News. “I owe them a debt of gratitude and a great big thank you.”

Thompson, 50, will be able to deliver that message in person when the FDNY holds its 25th annual Second Chance ceremony on Tuesday, where FDNY first responders are reunited with the people they saved in the past year.

“First thing I’m going to do is shake their hands, then I’m going to give each of them a great big bear hug,” Thompson said smiling. “This was a matter of life and death and to get to meet the people who saved my life is a tremendous opportunity.”
