It all happened in a matter of seconds and the child was able to breathe again with no further damage or injuries. Kokenzie and the coworker who handed him the scissors saved the day, but apparently, the whole staff at the restaurant is properly trained for such a situation. That is according to the restaurant’s owner, Alex Vann. However, it was Kokenzie’s calm demeanor under pressure that made him stand out. This demeanor is what gave him the nickname “Cowboy” as he had once managed to stay calm after nearly falling off a horse he was riding.
Not the Only Hero
Kokenzie is not the first, nor the only Chick-Fil-A worker to have rescued a kid from choking. Logan Simmons, a Chick-Fil-A manager, was only 19 when he literally jumped out of the drive-thru window to save a six-year-old boy from choking. The whole thing was caught on a security camera. The footage even shows him using a pocket knife to perform this heroic act.
