The incident occurred in a Chick-fil-A location south of Denver.

A fast-food worker was on his lunch break when he stepped in to help his co-worker, who had gotten into some unexpected trouble.

Andrew Myrant, an employee at the Highlands Ranch, Colorado, Chick-fil-A location noticed his co-worker signaling that he was choking and quickly jumped in to give him the Heimlich maneuver, ABC News reported.

“I mean, it makes me feel pretty awkward because I don't feel like it, but they say 'hero' a lot, and one of my managers bought me a sandwich for the other day, so that was nice,” he told ABC News.

In video footage, Myrant sits back down to eat after the food is dislodged from his co-workers throat.
