After nearly dying on the turf at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas two years ago, former Seahawks receiver Ricardo Lockette has been able to resume a mostly normal life.
Lockette was seriously injured on a kickoff against the Dallas Cowboys when he was hit by safety Jeff Heath. The impact left Lockette with serious neck injuries that Lockette has said left him perilously close to death. He's credited the work of EMTs at the stadium for helping save his life.
Lockette was surprised to meet a pair of those workers on Wednesday.
In a video posed by Will Sherratt of KXLY-4 in Spokane, Lockette was attending the Washington State Fire Chiefs convention when he was surprised by two of the firefighters (including one of the two pictured above) that attended to him on the field outside of Dallas two years ago.
The emotional moment was captured below.
