Chick Fil A employee jumps out drive-thru window to save a choking child


Logan Simmons is a manager at the Chick Fil A in Flowery Branch Georgia. And this week he added hero to his resume by jumping out the drive-thru window to rescue a boy in the back seat of a car who was choking.

When he got there he saw the boy's seat belt was wrapped around his neck, so Simmons used a pocket knife to cut him free and save his life.

"I'm just so thankful everyone is OK," Simmons said in a statement provided by the restaurant chain. "As soon as I realized what was going on, all I could think about was getting to the car as quickly as possible, so I jumped through the window. I'm still a little shocked by what happened but am grateful I was able to help."

He said he has received an outpouring of support from the community.

"Everyone's been cheering and shouting my name and asking me to come sit with them and stuff," Simmons said Friday.

He added that people have been making special trips to the local Chick-fil-A just to talk to him while he's at work.

By the way...Chick-fil-A did not formally train him how to save anyone's life, but he said he thinks he can handle a high amount of stress, and in the moment, his instincts kicked in and spurred him to action.
