When a young Chick-Fil-A worker heard that a young boy was choking to death, he literally leaped into action — right through the drive-thru window.

According to WSB-TV Atlanta, it all happened at a Flowery Branch, Georgia location on Wednesday. A woman pulled up to the drive-thru speaker and screamed that her son was choking to death.

Surveillance video captured Logan Simmons springing into action and leaping through the window to save the boy. 

"I just jumped out the window and ran straight down to the car," Simmons told reporters late. “I think it was the quickest option. It was right there and I saw the other car right there.”

He found the six-year-old in the car with a seatbelt strap wrapped tightly around his neck.

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

Simmons pulled out his pocket knife and cut through the belt, saving the boy. His grateful mother called the Chick-fil-A worker later to thank him for taking action that quite likely spared her son’s life.

When Simmons got home, he didn’t tell his own mother what happened right away.

"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?’" his mom Terri recalled. “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?'”

“I’m still kind of shocked right now that all this happened,” Simmons told reporters. 

“I do feel like a hero.”

Simmons was certainly given praise for both himself and the entire chicken sandwich chain on Twitter.
