A teenage Macca’s employee saved an infant in a drive-thru emergency in a Brisbane outlet.
Lily Kay, a student paramedic, took charge when a baby boy began having a seizure at the Underwood branch of McDonald’s.
The parents of little, Benji Burgess are hailing the heroic actions of the 19-year-old, claiming she saved their boy’s life, reports 7 news.
“She’s my hero, she saved him – there’s no two ways about it for me,” mum Jodi said.
Jodi and her husband were going through a McDonald’s drive-thru when Benji began making a strange noise after being unwell.
“I could see his feet shaking,” Jodi recalled.
“I was terrified, he was turning blue and I was screaming ‘he’s turning blue, he’s turning blue!'”
The McDonald’s employee serving the family at the time was Ms Kay, who ran around to help as soon as she realised what was happening.
“I said to my manager ‘that boy is having a seizure’, he said ‘go straight out and help her’,” Lily revealed.
“It felt like forever, when he did finish seizing, I just checked he was breathing, made sure he wasn’t swallowing his own spit and rolled him on the side and things like that.”
Benji was rushed to hospital, where it was revealed a virus had caused his seizure.
Jodi says she believes Lily’s presence was “divine intervention” but the teen reckons it was “just very lucky” she was there at the right place and the right time.
How very lucky. Right place, right time, that’s for sure!
