We had a reader reach out to us today about an incident that happened yesterday at the Qik-n-EZ on Stevenson Drive around 3:30pm.
This reader was at the counter getting ready to pay and a man runs in and asks the employees to call 911 that there’s a man at a pump having serious medical problems. She writes in that one of the employees said “yeah right” and laughed, and didn’t even attempt to look or call for help. He then asks again two more times to the employees and the manager on duty and no one helps him.
Our reader follows the man to the parking lot to see what she could do (she was trained in CPR). By this time someone had made a 911 call finally from a cell phone (another customer in the parking lot), and help was on its way. Our reader with the help of the man who ran inside and another good Samaritan got the man out his car and was able to start CPR on him until paramedics arrived.
According to eye witnesses not once did any one from the Gas Station make any attempt to help or even check on the situation. One person stated “The Employees all acted like it was a joke”.
We reached out to Chronister Oil the ownership of Qik N Ez and at the time of this posting no comment had been returned.
