A Wendy’s worker was given the impromptu opportunity to have a break from work; normally a delightful surprise, but it wasn’t for R&R.
At a franchise location on Richmond Road in Lexington, Kentucky, a man had collapsed in the parking lot. Alexandria Cowheard was on shift and alerted to the situation by her coworker.
She had already called 911 by the time she arrived at the man’s unconscious body, but the color of his face told of the need for immediate action.
“I didn’t panic visibly, but in the back of my mind, I was like, what do I do,” Cowheard said. “I kind of short-circuited a little bit before I was like, ‘Girl, you know how to do CPR; get over here and do these chest compressions.’”
The 22-year-old Alexandria learned CPR in her senior year of high school, and after a short time doing chest compressions, he “did that snoring thing again,” and gasped for air.
The whole thing took just a few minutes, but to the adrenaline-soaked mind of Alexandria, it seemed a long while.
The young woman is working at Wendy’s while going to school at BCTC to become a certified nursing assistant, according to WKYT, and the future medical professional wants to work in the NICU when she finishes school.
At that moment though, she put her future career aside and went right back to work.
