Dramatic video has emerged of a former college football standout and high school coach disarming a distressed and suicidal student who had brought a loaded shotgun to Parkrose High School in Portland, Oregon.

Keanon Lowe, a former Oregon Ducks wide receiver and a current football coach for the high school, is seen in the dramatic school surveillance footage holding Angel Granados-Diaz in one hand and grasping the loaded shotgun the Parkrose student had brought to campus in the other. Granados-Diaz had come to school with the intention of committing suicide.

After another school staff member retrieves the gun, Lowe can be seen embracing and hugging the distressed young man.

I felt compassion for the kid, to be honest. I had a real-life conversation. Obviously, he broke down and I just wanted to let him know that I was there for him. I told him I was there to save him — I was there for a reason and that this is a life worth living.”

Lowe also spoke of his belief that the universe works in unpredictable ways, and stated that he doesn’t view himself as a hero for his actions in the terrifying incident.

Granados-Diaz was sentenced to three years probation for felony possession of a firearm in a public building on Thursday. A judge mandated that he seek the mental health treatment he needs. Fortunately for the young man, the concerning incident played out in a manner that was far better than it could’ve been, thanks to the sudden brave actions of Lowe.

TOUCHING: Trump Supporters Carry World War II Veteran at Arizona Rally

The men recognize the sacrifice of America’s greatest generation.

A touching moment occurred at a Trump rally in Arizona on Wednesday, when two men were seen carrying an elderly World War II veteran to designated seating at the event.

The patriot could be identified as a World War II Veteran through his hat.

Video of the event showed the love the Trump rally crowd expressed for the rare veteran. Rallygoers chanted “USA, USA,” quite possibly recognizing the fellow as a veteran of the World War from his hat.

In an era where fewer and fewer World War II veterans are living and able to recount their experiences fighting in the greatest war in history, it’s fitting that the public takes as many chances as possible to thank those who placed their lives on the line in the war that preceded a half century of American prosperity.

President Trump himself saw video of the touching scene en route to the venue for the event.

Fittingly, the rally is being held at Phoenix’s Veterans Memorial Coliseum. Pre-event footage showed a possibly record setting crowd for a Trump rally in Arizona.

President Trump is set to begin his remarks at 7PM Arizona time. He’ll boost Republican Senator Martha McSally, who faces a re-election battle in the state in 2020.

Arizona is likely also to be a competitive state in the presidential election. The once solid-red state has shifted purple in recent years as the state’s population has increased exponentially.
