Chick-fil-A worker saves choking child

HALL COUNTY, Ga. (WSB/CNN) - A heroic fast food rescue was caught on camera in the Atlanta area.

Logan Simmons, who works at Chick-fil-A, jumped out the drive-thru window to save a 6-year-old boy choking on a seat belt wrapped around his neck.

"I'm still kind of shocked right now myself that all this has happened," said Logan.

You could call him the fast food hero.

"I just jumped out the window and ran straight down to the car," he said.

Chick-fil-A provided dramatic surveillance video to WSB. It shows Logan take a leap out of the drive-thru window to run toward the choking child.

"I think it was the quickest option, it was right there and I saw the other car right there," he said.

Once outside of the restaurant, Logan jumped in the child's car in the drive-thru and found the little boy's mother, begging for help with her son's seat belt that somehow got tangled around his neck.

"You could see he was turning red and losing pigmentation in his face," Logan said.

Logan pulled out his pocket knife and cut the little boy free, possibly preventing 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?'" said Teri Simmons, Logan Simmons' mother.

Just an hour later, the boy's mother called Logan to thank him for saving her child's life.
