A heroic teen saves the day at a Chick-fil-A drive thru when he rescued a child that was choking in the backseat of an SUV.
Zack Kokenzie was recently working the Chick-fil-A drive thru in Columbus, Georgia when he heard frantic cries in the drive thru line. That's when he looked out the window and saw a father rushing to the back of his SUV. It appeared that there was a choking child in the back seat. The seatbelt had gotten wrapped around the child's windpipe.

Being that Zack is a trained Eagle Scout and CPR certified, he was prepared to jump in and offer assistance in any way. And that's exactly what he did! Zack jumped through the drive through window and went to the rear of the vehicle. Then he cut through the seatbelt with a pair of scissors, freeing the choking child.
