God made a miracle happen when we stopped for lunch

Theia's mother said as soon as Mia, a Chick-fil-A worker nearby, realized what was happening she dropped the iPad she was taking orders on and ran over to her vehicle. That's when Mia began performing the Heimlich maneuver on young Theia right there in the parking lot of Chick-fil-A.  Within seconds, the pesky coin lodged in Theia's throat came flying out. Still in shock, Liliana flung her arms around her daughter filled with the utmost gratitude.

I can't thank Mia enough for saving Theia. She was in the right place today and didn't hesitate for even a second

With only moments to act, Mia saved Theia's life. The unthinkable could have happened had she not been nearby. Calling 911 would have most likely taken too long so it really was a miracle that Mia was there and prepared on how to perform the Heimlich on a small child. Theia was in good spirits after the scare was over and was given ice cream by the workers.
