Rare are the instances when people go out of their way and risk their lives to save others. One such incident has now surfaced from Florida in the United States. The incident took place on 14 September, Wednesday, near a restaurant in Florida when a woman with her baby was attacked by a man while she was trying to get out of the car. The man forcefully snatched the keys to her vehicle at the parking lot of a Chick-fil-A restaurant. Just then, a young worker of the outlet sprang into action and stopped the man.

A video of the same has also gone viral on social media, and shows the Chick-fil-A employee engaging in a physical altercation with the other guy. Soon after that, several onlookers intervened and handed over the man to the police.

Watch the video here:


In a statement issued by the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office (OCSO), the police informed that the incident took place in the parking lot of the Chick-fil-A on Beal Parkway in Fort Walton Beach on Wednesday afternoon when the man stole the woman’s car keys while “wielding a stick” out to her.

Later, when he got inside and tried to run away, the woman started shouting which caught the attention of the people. It was then that the fast-food employee, identified as Mykel Gordon, came to the woman’s rescue and pushed the accused to the ground.

The video of the same has been also shared by the police department on their Twitter and Facebook handles as they captioned the video with “A major shout-out to this young man for his courage!” The OSCO in its statement also informed that the suspect was charged with ‘carjacking’ with a weapon and battery and was eventually arrested.
