Mike Bell’s boss didn’t like the way he looked — and taking time to be concerned saved the car salesman’s life.
The dealership’s owner, Gus Rodriguez was worried about his health, so he told him to take a sick day, and see a doctor to “figure out what’s going on.”

It was a good thing Bell took his boss’ advice — he collapsed at the hospital on his way to have an X-ray and had to be rushed into emergency open-heart surgery.
Doctors believe he would have died had he not come in that day, due to a tear in his aorta that surgeons had to patch.
Rodriguez insisted that his employee regain lost weight before letting him return to the showroom floor.
The owner of Jeep-Chrysler-Dodge City of Mckinney, Texas also helped with his employee’s financial health — supporting Bell through his 14-day hospital stay and lengthy recovery at home.
“He took care of me and made sure I could still pay the bills,” Bell told WFAA News.
