A man from Arcola, TX, helped two different State Troopers during two separate traffic stops before suddenly collapsing and dying.

Glenn "Bam Bam" Sanco observed a Trooper involved in what appeared to him to be a chaotic traffic stop, so he stopped the tow-truck he was driving and approached the trooper. Once the stop had concluded, the two men exchanged contact information, and went their separate ways.

Later that day, he again backed up a trooper at a stop. A suspect was fleeing a stop on foot, running in the direction of Sanco's truck. Sanco got out of his vehicle and helped the pursuing trooper take the driver into custody.

According to ABC News, it was then that Sanco collapsed.

Troopers administered CPR, but he died shortly thereafter at a local hospital. It is suspected he died of a massive heart attack.

Family members say Sanco always wanted to be a police officer, but the responsibilities of providing for his family kept him from returning to school. 

In a Facebook post, one of the troopers reportedly said, "The last two things [Sanco] did on this earth was help me that morning and my coworker that afternoon. That will never go unnoticed, and I promise to pay it forward each day I live."
