The manager of Chick-fil-A branch in California saved a man’s life from a heart attack last week. Tauya Nenguke, the 22-year-old employee, sprinted across the parking lot’s other side and saved the life of the man.
Tauya said he was outside Chick-Fil-A when he saw someone on the other side of the parking lot. He saw someone on the ground and seems perplexed. At first, the manager thought the guy was having car trouble, but as he observed, Tauya realized it might be a medical situation so he rushed across the parking lot to see what he can do to help.
ABC 10 News reports that the person who suffered from cardiac arrest was unconscious. ABC 10 also said Tauya saved the life of the man.
The footage from security video shows Tauya running across the parking lot. The restaurant manager said, “He wasn’t breathing or anything. His eyes were rolled back into his head. This was my time to use what I’ve learned to save this man’s life.”
Tauya dreams of becoming a nurse someday, and he had taken several pre-nursing classes already, so he knows how to perform CPR. He taught chest compression to the friend of the man, and they shift on the compressions until the arrival of the paramedics. He hopes to finish his nursing course and might enroll next year.
The Chick-fil-A manager says, “There wasn’t any hesitation on my part. I knew that was the place where God placed me at that moment. That was truly a real big eye-opener to my calling to be in health care. Because at the moment, it was like instinct took over.”
It’s is not the first incident when a Chick-Fil-A worker has saved a person’s life. An employee from a Georgia branch helped a 6-year-old boy got out of the car’s backseat. The boy is already choking because the seatbelt got tangled around his neck. His mother was begging for help from strangers.
Chick-Fil-A is the United States’ third-biggest fast-food-chain in sales. Its corporate objective reads: “To glorify God by being a faithful steward of all that is entrusted to us and to have a positive influence on all who come into contact with Chick-fil-A.”
