According to his wife, Marivi Weidman, “All-American” came to the aid of his 94-year-old neighbor who had fallen and hit her head on a glass table while attempting to feed her dog.
Shout out to this man @chrisweidmanufc who just saved our 92 year old neighbors life. She fell onto a glass table and had pieces stuck in her head. She was in her driveway bleeding out in the rain trying to call her daughter on the phone. Chris ran over and brought her inside, cleaned her up and called 911. #myhero
Weidman explained the ordeal in detail to UFC.com.
“I kept hearing this crazy, weird noise repeatedly. I started looking over where I’m hearing the noise from and I didn’t know if I was just hearing things because it was so loud with the rain,” Weidman said. “There was someone standing in their driveway on their phone in the middle of the rain.”
This prompted Weidman to leap into action, leaping out of his car and carrying the victim out of the rain and inside her open garage. From that point, he knew he had to get the woman medical attention.
“She’s completely drenched in blood, it was a nightmare scene. Blood is pouring out of her head,” Weidman told UFC.com. “I was trying to get her to calm down, talking about her dog and trying to change the subject; she kept saying she just wanted one more year to live, and I’m like ‘you’re going to be fine, you’re not dying today.’ And while this is happening, she’s pounding blood out of her head. I grabbed a bunch of paper towels and I start holding it on her head. I’m getting bloody, but all the while I’m imagining that it was my grandma. I literally went through a whole outdoor garbage pail full of paper towels.”
Paramedics arrived on the scene and escorted the woman to a nearby hospital. There is no update as of yet to her condition.
