A Chick-fil-A employee did one heroic thing that will warm your heart

49

Despite closing on Sundays, Chick-fil-A has been able to earn the title of the top fast food restaurant.

With every day that goes by, they prove exactly why they have that title.

And a Chick-fil-A employee just did one heroic thing that will warm your heart.

While Chick-fil-A is known for their delicious chicken, it is the service and family values that brings people back.

Their employees are known to go above and beyond.

And one employee in Chula Vista, California did just that by saving a man’s life this week.

Tauya Nenguke was working the drive-thru when he saw a man acting odd across the parking lot.

After running over to him, he realized the man was going into cardiac arrest.

Using the medical training he is learning in pre-nursing classes, he began performing CPR while an ambulance was called, saving the man’s life according to an EMT on scene.

Fox News reports:

A Chick-fil-A employee working the drive-thru in in Chula Vista, Calif., is being celebrated for springing into action and saving a man’s life, an act he credits to his faith in God.

When Tauya Nenguke, a 22-year-old team leader, noticed something suspicious going on across the parking lot last Wednesday night, he handed off his iPad to a co-worker and sprinted over to make sure everything was alright, FOX 5 reported.

What Nenguke found was a 20-year-old man going into cardiac arrest on the ground, surrounded by friends trying to perform CPR, according to Cheryl Shields, director of marketing and community relations for Eastlake Terraces Chick-fil-A, who shared the story on Facebook.

Nenguke, who wants to go to nursing school and had pre-nursing classes under his belt, immediately began chest compressions on the unresponsive individual and told the man’s friends to call 911. He also taught the friends how to do CPR so they could take turns until paramedics arrived and took the victim to the hospital.

“The EMT stated that if it wasn’t for his quick action, this young man might not have survived,” Shields wrote, calling the quick-thinking Chick-fil-A employee a “CFA Hero!”

This isn’t the only time a Chick-fil-A employee made all the difference in a medical emergency.

Last year, a Texas couple ended up delivering their newborn child inside a Chick-fil-A bathroom.

And in response, Chick-fil-A gifted the newborn food for life, along with a job once she becomes old enough.

Do you think Chick-fil-A is the best fast food restaurant?

  2. What a wonderful story about this fine young man and his quick thinking! Thank GOD he was on duty that day and time!! I also love to hear he was an employee of Chick-fil-A. Which once again shows the quality of, not only their great food, but of their employees as well. This is why , no matter how hard hate groups try to make trouble for Chick-fil-A , GOD is protecting them and they will continue to grow and thrive…..GOD bless them always..

  3. You ask “Do you think Chick-fil-A is the best fast food restaurant?” Not only are they the best when it comes to chicken, but their staff is always courteous and attentive. I keep asking the Chick-fil-a members, where management ‘found them’, as I’d like to adopt a few of them…and they just laugh!

  4. This was an awesome story. But it’s to be expected of employees of Chick-Fil-A. They are all great people and blessed by God as He continues to be with this great restaurant. There’s a good reason why they are America’s favorite fast food chain.

  5. Every experience I’ve ever had at a Chick-Fil-A goes way beyond awesome food and fantastic customer service. They are the whole package in what a restaurant experience should be. Thank you. God has blessed this country by giving the wonderful owners and staff of Chick-Fil-A!

  6. Not surprising to hear more good about this great Christian organization, so much evidence of good in their employee ranks. Love the food, love their organization and employees. Our best to them in the future!!!

  7. They really have a better caliber of people at Chik-fil-A. Good for this young man for saving that victim who should thank God he was in the right place at the right time!! This is the Real America!!

  8. The left hate Chick-fil-A not just because of the Christian Work Ethic the company has but because the employees automatically render services to the communities they are in with no strings attached. Not only is the chicken and chicken sandwiches great, but they have some of the best salads I have ever had. And don’t forget the Waffle Fries!!!

  9. Great for Chick-fil-A!! They have great people working for them, with high standards. May God continue to protect their business, inspire of what the left dishes out against them.

  10. God bless this quick thinking young man. Yes Chic-fil-A does hire a high caliber of people but there food is beyond delicious. The restaurant is always bustling and there is constantly a long line at the take-out window. Their values are exemplary and I’m happy to be a long time customer.

  11. Chick-fil-A not only serves great meals with a smile, but also saves lives!! WOW! That tells me that this organization hires people who not only give great service, but gives 110%!! (I live in Hawaii, and we don’t have a Chick-fil-A here, but I sure wish they would open one here!)

  12. We have experienced several hurricanes, massive wide-spread flooding and so many out of their homes and losing all their possessions. and Chick fil-A personnel and the restaurant opened and fed the first responders and homeowners and other volunteers. Quality and great tasting Original Chicken Sandwich, Waffle Fries, and a ice cold lemonade, what is better? Served with a smile!

  13. This is a WONDERFUL thing! But it has NOTHING to do with being a so called “Christian” organization, and rather having some really good people. Any other company has plenty of people that would act the same.

  14. I’ve only been to A Chick-Fil-A once and at that time, I had no idea what their feelings were on any subject.
    But what I noticed was happy employees! Smiling and greeting people often.
    And then I tasted their sauce.
    I loved it.
    It’s great to have a business that stands up for our culture. After all, many minorities are Christians, too.
    And they are wonderful, kind and giving people.
    Wherever there is a disaster in the world, it seems like there are Christian young people already there, serving the Lord.

  15. Well, it starts with what the company stands for……it might do well for other companies to take notice and for the alphabet crowd and the radical left to stop their hideous attacks on a good American biding company.

  16. Have you ever been to Chicago? I went in a store there and a clerk had her head propped up by her hands and her elbows were on the glass counter. She was actually glaring at the people who came in the door!
    I have never seen such rude people in my life. Truck drivers were leaning out the windows of their trucks and shaking their fists in traffic! And the traffic wasn’t even that bad. When a rude one we saw observed our license plate he smiled big. And said something positive about our state: Oregon.
    I had a bad experience at the San Francisco airport, once, too.
    The employees were terrible and rude. I think it was some kind of burger fast food – Burger King or maybe McDonald’s and the worst employees ever.
    Another woman in Chicago said that the western states are the sweetest and that the people are good hosts – compared to her city.
    And Mary Hemingway said it when she wrote a postcard to our relative. She said that the people in the West are the nicest. Yes, Ernest Hemingway’s wife.
    Come out West if you want, but you have to be willing to wave at people in traffic in friendly fashion.
    Even people from Hawaii said they had never seen such friendliness in traffic. LOL

  17. I LOVE THE GRILLED CHICKEN SANDWICH AND WAFFLE FRIES. I HAVE NEVER HAD A BAD EXPERIENCE WITH CHICK-FIL-A THE ASSOCIATES ARE ALWAYS SMILING AND HAVE SUCH AN UPBEAT ATTITUDE. THEY SERVE ALL THEIR CUSTOMERS THE SAME WAY, ALWAYS POLITELY AND WITH A SMILE, REGARDLESS OF THE RACE OR GENDER OF THE CUSTOMER. I SAW ONE OF THE ASSOCIATES HELP A LADY COUNT OUT HER CHANGE IN ORDER TO HAVE A SANDWICH, AND IT WAS DONE WITH A SMILE.

  18. I appreciate Chick -fil-a ‘s values . Thank you Chick-fil-a for taking a Christian stand !
    Your sandwiches are so good !

  19. These students and faculty at these universities are sick people, and should NOT be given time to knock Chick-chicken Filet, they and their employees are head and shoulders better than these people that are knocking any thing that they can not compete with, they are total LOSERS.

  20. this should be a standard for all the chik-fil-a shops, it dosn’t cost much to do the E.M.T. FIRST RESPONDER course.. everybody proffits from the emergency help..and it might be worth a few bucks extra in the pay envelope..

  21. I always enjoy my visit to C F A.
    Great food
    Great Service.
    The employees are always very
    Friendly
    Helpful
    Wish they were closer..

  22. You are the best. And I swear every Sunday I drive by your store somewhere and want to stop. But I wholeheartedly believe that all stores should be closed on Sunday and that more family time would be available. Congratulations to all your employees. They are the best!!!!

  23. I have never had a bad experience at a Chick Fil A. The food is always great. Service is great and they always greet you with a smile. I love that they close on Sundays. God Bless Them and Their Employees.

  24. A GREAT STORY FOR A GREAT COMPANY. HATS OFF TO YOU IF YOU ARE CLOSED ON SUNDAY. ALL OF THE FOLKS AT YOUR FACILITIES ARE SO NICE. KEEP DOING WHAT YOU ARE DOING – IF YOU DO IT RIGHT, THINGS WILL CONTINUE TO GET BETTER.

  25. CFA IS NOT ONLY A 5*****RESTAURANT BUT THEIR EMPLOYEES ARE 5***** ALSO. WAY TO GO CFA YOU ARE THE BEST NO MATTER WITH THE LIBERAL DEMS SAY!

  26. When we travel, we keep an eye out for Chik-Fil- A, but there are none near where I live. I just wish a Chik-Fil-A would open in the Kendall area of Miami-Dade county!!!

  27. Hey, Everybody who is anybody!

    Of course: absolutely, unequivocally, and scrumptiously … Chic-fil-A is “the very best of the best of all the fast food restaurants” that exist on our entire planet!

    So says … “Dr. Derf!” (It just so happens this moniker is the definition for the word DESTINY! MIRACULOUS Or “Uncanny?”)

    And that C-f-A employee was “planted” by our gracious God to be at that right moment, in that right place,

    at that right time, to do that right thing, with that right person! Amen??? And TBTG!

    May long live C-f-A and do have a God-blessed day! As I love to say in my own inimitable way.

  28. Chic-Fil-A stores are in a class with few peers. Always the best food, best service, best employees, with world class attitudes, and fair prices; always, a win-win combination. Better than the “finger licking completion”!

  29. Everyone is so correct . . . Chic-Fil-A is the BEST. It is always a great place to be for good food and good people. The only thing they have ever done that totally disappointed me was to stop serving the chicken salad sandwich. It’s the best in the world, other than my Mama’s of course.

  30. You simply can NOT build a good structure on a BAD FOUNDATION !!! This business is built on principles to honor God, Who is THE GIVER of all blessings, of “every good and perfect gift.” It naturally follows that personnel, performance, and product will be profoundly positive !!! It shows throughout this business, and “shows up” the lesser qualities of businesses built on lesser ideals. Therefore it is NOT surprising that an employee from this environment would immediately spring into action to help a person in serious danger to life or limb. The people in the USA could well afford to take notice, and copy such a fine example of benevolent service to our fellow man !!!

  31. Nick P: Yes they will. But that’s why we MUST support Chick-fil-A through every avenue available to us. The Democrats hate everything that is good and decent. So hopefully the Republicans will regain the Senate and Congress in 2020 and we will finally see morals being returned. Keep the faith…

  32. Eric, You couldn’t be more wrong It is those Christian Values that are instilled in each and every employee of Chi-Fil-A that sets them apart from all other companies that operate “for profit only”. You’re wrong that any other company would do the same. I have traveled extensively throughout the world and have been to fast food places and restaurants in third world countries that surpass the work ethics of most American companies. It has everything to do with being a Christian organization. McDonald’s, Burger King, Wendy’s Popeye’s, and many other fast food places have some of the most rude employees I have ever encountered. You would do well to brush up on your knowledge of those “so called “Christian” organizations” and the people who work for them and less about bashing Christianity. I truly feel sorry for you and your prejudices.

  33. Eric, you are WRONG!!!! It has EVERYTHING to do with it. Morals, values, character, integrity come from God and are what Jesus teaches us. But you have rejected Jesus and have no clue about who He is or His great love and sacrifice for us.

  34. By all means Chick-fil-a is great. Their food is good and those that work there are too great. The atmosphere is nice and you actually see people smiling and laughing.

  35. I was in a new CFA store in my town. It is an “outstore” at a larger shopping mall. A little boy, probably about 5 or 6 was in line ahead of me. He ordered something and when told how much it was it turned out he had no money. Evidentially he walked away from him Mom and came to CFA. I told the clerk to just put it on my bill and I would take care of it. She said “no that she would take care of it and put his order through. Not sure if that is company policy but I was very impressed to see that she would not let this littke customer go hungry. Later I saw his mother come into the store and found the little guy happily sitting and eating his meal. Try to go to any supermarket and be a few cents short. You will have to leave something behind.

  36. bj: I am approaching you on this story because I don’t want K.S. to know. I am not afraid of her. I’m sick of reading her condescending and false remarks. She is still posting remarks( the cheerleader’s story) and just won’t let it go. She truly must get the last word in and now she’s playing the victim! You and I did battle with her on the planned parenthood story, remember? She supports abortions big time. This woman truly is one of Satan’s generals. Just thought I’d let you know.
    On a personal note, just one more month of chemo and I should be done. Plus my son got his kitten back! Praise GOD…..

  37. I believe the employees and owner(s) are remarkable in their moral code and are unafraid of doing what is right even if it is not popular or politically correct.
