BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. — An 18-year-old Chick-fil-A worker is being credited with saving a man’s life at a Boynton Beach restaurant.

Boynton Beach High School senior Sarah VanRoekel [editor’s note: Sarah is a member of Boynton Beach Community Church, a Presbyterian Church in America congregation] saw Ed Kosiec go into cardiac arrest while she was working. VanRoekel jumped right in and started performing CPR on Kosiec.

“Cassie comes back and she’s like, does anybody know CPR?” VanRoekel told WPTV. “I just ran out. I didn’t say anything, I just took off my hairnet, took off my gloves, and I was like, where is he, where is she? We gotta get going ASAP.”

VanRoekel did CPR until Boynton Beach Fire Rescue arrived on scene.

On Wednesday VanRoekel reunited with Koseic.

“It happened so fast,” said Kosiec. “If someone’s not there like Sarah was to help me, it could’ve been a lot different.”
