A post on Facebook went viral, showing several Tulsans rush to the aid of woman who collapsed on the sidewalk.

The post detailed an incident near 49th and Peoria.

Cindy Webb tells us she was driving north on Peoria near 49th when she noticed an elderly woman lying on her back on the sidewalk.

Webb quickly turned around to see if the woman needed help, and she was not the only one.

Webb says as she was calling 9-1-1, a man used his jacket as a headrest for the woman and two employees from a nearby business showed up with buckets of ice and water.

Roselvi Gomez tells us, "I decided to take a bucket of water with ice and I took two or three rags.”

A photo of the scene was shared to Facebook where it has over 220,000 shares.

“People caring for another human being that had fallen it was really special and really what I needed to hear yesterday and apparently what the rest of the country and world need to hear because it had gone so viral", says Webb.

We are told by authorities and witnesses that the woman was responsive and is expected to make a full recovery.
