Chick-fil-A employees are recognized for being well mannered and keen to please. however a Flowery Branch Chick-fil-A employee is now being celebrated a hero.
The Hall County teen was operating the drive-through Wednesday when a vehicle pulled up with a 6-yr-old choking inside. So, the young man jumped in to assist.
“I’m still kind of shocked right now myself that all this has happened,” Logan Simmons stated.
His mom informed Channel 2’s Justin Wilfon, to her son, it was simply all in an afternoon’s work.
“He’d been home for a couple of hours and he said nonchalantly, ‘I saved a kid’s life today,’ and i was like ‘What?’” the boy’s mother Teri Simmons stated.
Chick-fil-A gave us the dramatic surveillance video that clearly shows Logan Simmons leaping out the drive-through window to rescue a choking child.
“I just jumped out the window and ran instantly down to the car,” Simmons stated. “I think it was the quickest option. It was right there and I saw the other car right there.”
On the outside of the Chick-fil-A, Simmons jumped into the vehicle inside the drive-through lane and rushed to the vehicle where the little boy’s mom was begging for help, with her son’s seat belt in some way tangled around his neck.
“You could see he was turning red and losing pigmentation in his face,” he stated.
Simmons pulled out a pocketknife, and cut the little boy loose and likely averted a tragedy.
“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?’” Teri Simmons stated.
An hour later, the little boy’s mother called up Logan Simmons and thanked him for saving her son’s young life.
“I do feel like a hero,” he stated.
