Liberal activists like to demonize Chick-fil-A as an evil, uncaring company because the people who run it believe in Christian values.
But an incident at restaurant in Flowerly Branch, Georgia proved this week that employees at the fast food chain go above and beyond to treat their customers right, and it likely saved a 6-year-old’s life.

“I’m kind of shocked right now myself that all this had happened,” Hall County teen Logan Simmons told WSB-TV.
Video footage from Chick-fil-A caught Simmons leaping through the store’s drive-thru window on Wednesday after he witnessed a customer’s child choking in a vehicle in the drive-thru lane. Simmons found the child tangled in a seatbelt around his neck, the boy’s mother begging for help.
He didn’t hesitate to save the day.
“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.”
“You could see he was turning red and losing pigmentation in his face,” Simmons said.
The teen pulled a large pocket-knife from his pocket and cut the child free, then resumed his shift and called it a day.
“He’d been home for a couple of hours and he said nonchalantly, ‘I save a kid’s life today,’ and I was like ‘What?’” Simmons’ mother, Teri Simmons, told the news site.
“I’m just amazed he didn’t panic,” she said. “As his mother, I would have panicked. I’d be running around going, ‘Oh my gosh! What do we do?’”
Simmons told WSB-TV he didn’t give the situation much thought, he just did what seemed right.
The boy’s mother later called him to personally thank him for saving her son’s life.
“I do feel like a hero,” Simmons said.
Folks online didn’t seem surprised by the service at the Georgia Chick-fil-A, with many recalling their own wonderful experiences at the Christian establishment.
“Such wonderful employees!” Susan Lee posted to Facebook. “While in LA as my daughter in-law was in her last days with cancer, I stopped to get some take home at the Hollywood store. A young lady noticed my distress, and asked if she could pray with me.”
“CFA literally out here saving lives and McDonalds can’t even get their ice cream machine to work. #jesuschicken,” TJ Toreno wrote.
“When they say it is my pleasure to serve you, they’re not joking,” Christy Breedlove added. “Wonderful story.”
“That place will save your life and your soul. #jesuschickensaves,” Megan Twiddy posted.
