Teen Headed to Justin Timberlake Concert Stops to Revive Dying Dad—3 Weeks Later, He Shows Up in Her Classroom

The first time Lexi Lindsey laid eyes on Brian Putt, there was no formal introduction, no handshake or polite greeting.

Brian had collapsed on the side of the road, and Lexi Lindsey was in a dead sprint after seeing Brian stagger to the shoulder of State Road 37 and wave his arms in a plea for help.

Brian, a married father of two daughters, an employee at Naval Surface Warfare Center Crane and U.S. Navy veteran, was suffering from heart arrhythmia. His implanted defibrillator was shocking his heart.

Lexi Lindsey was on her way to a Justin Timberlake concert in Indianapolis. When she saw the Spencer man in trouble, she shouted at the person driving to stop the car.

What followed was a story of how one selfless teenager stopping to help a stranger likely saved his life.

Last week, the Times-Mail shared the story of Lexi’s actions and how she used skills she learned in her health careers class at the North Lawrence Career Center to help Brian until an ambulance arrived. She called 911, pulled him out of the roadway and kept talking to him to keep him alert and conscious.

Brian was placed in the ambulance without Lexi ever learning his name.

However, on Monday, when Brian came into her classroom at the career center, it was clear she had not forgotten his face. Carrying a bouquet of flowers, his appearance stunned the Bedford North Lawrence senior, who immediately burst into tears at the sight of him.

For Lexi, it was a reunion she never thought would happen.

“I’m just glad you’re OK,” she said, wiping tears from her cheeks.

Putt, a guy who stands 6 feet 2 inches, embraced Lexi Lindsey in a bear hug, thanking her, not just for himself but his wife, daughters, friends, family, and co-workers for what she did April 2.

He, too, wondered who the young woman was who stopped to help. It wasn’t long before he learned her name. Brian said he works with a couple of Bedford residents who told him about the newspaper story.

“After reading the article, I can’t imagine what that day was like for you,” he said. “I’m guessing you were sitting in the car, singing ‘Bye, Bye, Bye’ and ‘Bringing Sexy Back’ … my daughter would do the exact same thing. When in the blink of an eye your life gets altered. That’s the way life works. You’re going down a path and it gets altered.”

“What made you stop? It’s something called character. What is that? It’s doing the right thing when no one else will,” he said to the students. “I was disoriented from the shocks of the defibrillator, but as soon as I saw the car pull up, I had a sense of calm and I knew I’d be all right.”

In addition to thanking Lexi personally, he joked, “I wanted you to know I’m more than just a bigger guy,” referring to the description she gave of him to the Times-Mail.

Besides praising Lexi for stopping, he had a message for the classmates crowded into the classroom.
