Chick-fil-A worker jumps through drive-thru window to save choking child
A Chick-fil-A employee from in Hall County, Ga, Atlanta is being labeled as a hero after he jumped out of the restaurant’s drive-thru window to save a six-year-old boy from choking.
“I’m still kind of shocked right now myself that all this has happened,” said Logan Simmons, the worker who saved the boy almost two weeks ago. “I just jumped out the window and ran straight down to the car.”
The surveillance video shows Simmons jumping out the drive-thru window without hesitation to save the suffering child.
“I think it was the quickest option, it was right there, and I saw the other car right there,” he said.
When Simmons reached the car the child was in, he found his mother begging for help. Somehow, her son’s seatbelt had gotten tangled around his neck.
“You could see he was turning red and losing pigmentation in his face,” Simmons said.
Simmons then pulled out his pocket knife and cut the child free, preventing a possible tragedy.
The hero’s mother, Teri had this to say:
“I’m amazed he didn’t panic. As his mother, I would have panicked. I’d be running around going ‘oh my gosh, what do we do?'”
Only an hour later, the boy’s mother called Simons, thanking him for saving the life of her child.
“I don’t feel like a hero,” he said.
When he was asked whether he thinks he might be getting a salary raise now that he’s a hero, Simmons said he might mention it to his bosses.
