While most NFL training staffs in Indianapolis for the Scouting Combine are there to make sure their teams don’t make a medical mistake, the Jets actually did something far more important this week.

According to Darryl Slater of the Newark Star-Ledger, two Jets assistant trainers, Josh Koch and Dave Zuffelato, helped save a life during and emergency on the way there.

The door had just closed on their flight from Newark when an elderly woman was in distress, and the two trainers came to her aid along with a doctor who was on board. They got her off the plane and performed CPR for five minutes until an ambulance arrived.

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

If they do nothing else this week, it was well spent, and the Jets should be proud to employ people who were ready to step up to help someone in need.
