Laying in his hospital bed, Brandon Berry doesn’t remember much before his now-famous encounter with Tim Tebow.

He was in the stands at Camelback Ranch in Glendale, enjoying a little Fall League baseball, when he started feeling hot and experienced a metallic taste in his mouth.

Next thing he knew, he was down. 

"To be honest, I thought I was dead," Berry said about 48 hours after the incident happened.

When he came out of his seizure, Tim Tebow was standing over him, along with first responders and a crowd of fans.

When he realized that he was very much alive, he says he felt a sense of calm and appreciates Tebow’s kind words and prayers.

"I never would have thought somebody, a pro athlete, would just come to be with me just for a seizure," Berry said. "To pray for was very gracious."

Berry called Tebow a class act for praying and sticking around to talk with him about movies and college football after he came to in the stadium.

"What I think is, God...put him there to be there in that comforting place to pray for me," Berry said.
