From the Apopka Police Department
The Apopka Police Department presented commendations Tuesday to three staff members of the McDonald's restaurant at 233 East Main Street.
On January 4th, a driver passed-out while going through the restaurant's drive-thru. McDonalds staff called 911 while trying to render assistance to the driver.
Employees Jasmine Sanchez, Michael McLaughlin and Carilee Brown removed a distraught five-year-old girl from the vehicle's back seat and brought her inside the restaurant, comforting her with food and emotional support while police officers and firefighters/paramedics attended to the passed-out driver.
It is selfless acts like these that continue to strengthen the bond between first responders and members of the Apopka community.
