How was your day today?
It’s a normal question that many of us inquire after a day’s work, and typically our answers are quite boring.
“It was fine.”
“It was one meeting after another.”
“I saved a kid’s life today.”
Wait, what was that?
On June 26, a Chick-fil-A employee had an incredible chance encounter that he will remember for the rest of his life.
“I’m still kind of shocked right now myself that all this has happened,” Logan Simmons, the heroic employee, told Channel 2 in Atlanta.
While Logan was on a shift at the Flowery Branch Chick-fil-A, he spotted a customer in distress.
“I just jumped out the window and ran straight down to the car,” he said. “I think it was the quickest option. It was right there and I saw the other car right there.”
After Logan jumped through the drive-thru window he ran to a car where a mother was frantically yelling for help. Somehow her son was choking from a tangled seatbelt.
“You could see he was turning red and losing pigmentation in his face.”
Logan used a pocketknife to free the child.
Even though Logan saved the child’s life, he stayed humble. His mother, Teri Simmons, said it wasn’t until a few hours after her son had been home that he nonchalantly told her that he saved a child’s life.
“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?’”
