Anything can happen at drive-thru but one thing you could be sure of is that Taco Bell would always go their way out to render help. A Taco Bell customer was recently saved by the workers and firefighters after he suffered from a heart attack at the drive-thru in Arizona.
Fortunately, the fire department was really near to the restaurant and firefighters arrived almost on time to help save the man. Michael Harris’s wife also claimed that she suspected something was wrong as he suddenly stopped after ordering the food and then help was given on time.
The United Phoenix Firefighters also posted about the incident on its Facebook page which read, “A feel-good Saturday story: Mike, a North Phoenix resident went into cardiac arrest a little over a week ago while in his vehicle. Fortunately, it happened across the street from Phoenix Fire Station 56. The engine company that runs out of that station was on another call at the time but thankfully, Captain Frank Keller and his partner Firefighter Eric Gonzales were there preparing to work on a brush truck that is in service for the summer months. Captain Keller heard the dispatch for a cardiac arrest and immediately ran across the street to render aid. He and Eric performed CPR on Mike for several minutes until the next closest engine company arrived.
They were able to get pulses back on Mike but he would then go into cardiac arrest three more times before he was stabilized at the hospital. We are elated to report that Mike made a full recovery. He was released from the hospital yesterday and was kind enough to stop by the fire station to pay Captain Keller a visit.”
It also mentioned that it becomes gratifying for everyone including the firefighters to save the person at the hour of grief and they wish a speedy recovery to Michael.
