No doubt when high-schooler Lexi Lindsey set out for a music concert, she didn’t expect to save a life. However, when she saw a figure slump over on the road, Lindsey didn’t hesitate. And as her car stopped, she raced straight over to see if she could help.
At first glance, there’s little to connect Lindsey with Brian Putt. After all, she’s a student at Bedford North Lawrence High School (BNL), and he’s a U.S. Navy vet. Nevertheless, as Lindsey set out for a Justin Timberlake concert in April 2019, their paths crossed in a very serendipitous way.
Putt, a father to two daughters, formerly served on a U.S. Navy submarine and currently works at the Naval Surface Warfare Center Crane. But during a work-related visit to Florida, he endured some health problems. Specifically, doctors diagnosed him with an irregular heartbeat, better known as heart arrhythmia.
