Burger King employee praised for helping diabetic customer

Burger King employee praised for helping diabetic customer

A Burger King employee in Texas went the extra mile when a customer in her drive-thru lane experienced her blood sugar level dropping.

Rebecca Boening has diabetes and suffers from a neurological pain disorder. "I honestly at first didn't know who she was or what she was doing".

"I was shaking and trying to get my money together and the little gal at the register didn't know what was going on and I looked up and all of a sudden, here comes this woman running to my auto", Boening said. "I do think she should be recognized and rewarded".

Rebecca Boening, 61, said she was driving on the interstate when her blood sugar dropped to a risky level.

Boening, who is from Amarillo, Texas, described the event on Facebook: "As I stumbled through placing my order I mentioned to the voice on the speaker that I was diabetic and in need of food".

That's when Tina Hardy came over the intercom.

"The next thing I know, I look up and this wonderful woman is running down the side of the building in the parking lot towards my vehicle", said Boening". "I parked real close to the window and she practically crawled on my hood to get that ice cream to me because she knew it was important".

"She squeezed between the front of my auto and the building just to bring me a small serving of ice cream", says Boening.

"I then took this picture and spoke with Tina's supervisor, telling him what she did for me". "I'm glad you got help so quickly". "And if something would've went wrong, at least I would've been able to tell the paramedics why and what happened".

The employee, Tina Hardy, told Boening her husband was diabetic and could tell she needed assistance. "This was wonderful what she did for you", said Ronda Gaston in a comment.

"I just like helping people", she said. "She had no idea if she would be fired for leaving her post and the building".

"A couple days later, a friend of mine in Vernon sent me the post and told me I was famous", said Hardy. As of December 13, the post has been liked more than 524,000 times and shared more than 221,4000 times.

The ladies now hope their social media story will encourage others to give back this holiday season. "If anybody has the chance to help somebody, you don't have to do it for praise or glory, just do it out of the kindness of your heart".
