Chick-fil-A Worker Sees 6-Yr-Old Choking in Car, Jumps Out Drive-Thru Window to Cut His Seatbelt Off


For the fourth year in a row, Chick-fil-A has topped restaurant charts as America’s favorite fast food chain, scoring an impressive 86 out of 100 on customer satisfaction surveys.

And last week, Georgia teen Logan Simmons proved those numbers don’t lie.

We all know Chick-fil-A workers are willing to go above and beyond to deliver top-notch customer service with a genuine smile and a warm “my pleasure” at every request.

But Logan took his role in serving customers to new heights when he jumped out the drive-thru window on Wednesday to save a 6-year-old’s life.

Just outside the restaurant, the teen noticed a mom begging for help after her son’s seatbelt ended up tangled around his neck.

“I just jumped out the window and ran straight down to the car,” said Logan. “I think it was the quickest option. It was right there and I saw the other car right there.”

“You could see he was turning red and losing pigmentation in his face,” he added.

The quick-thinking teen whipped out his pocketknife and cut the choking child free from the seatbelt, averting serious tragedy.

According to Logan’s mother, Teri Simmons, the heroic act was all in a day’s work for her son.

“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?’” recalled Teri.

The proud mother was impressed by her son’s ability to remain calm and collected under such an urgent, pressure-filled situation.

“I’m amazed he didn’t panic,” she shared. “As his mother, I would have panicked. I’d be running around going, ‘Oh my gosh! What do we do?’”

Though Logan says he’s “still in shock” over the whole situation, he admits that saving a child’s life was a rewarding feeling.

About an hour after the incident, the 6-year-old’s mom called him to thank him for saving her son’s life.

“I do feel like a hero,” said the teen.

Indeed, Logan, you are.
