An online post praising a Burger King employee for helping a woman with type 1 diabetes has gone viral.Rebecca Boening, 61, was behind the wheel of her car in Texas when her blood sugar levels became dangerously low.
Tina Hardy, 32, whose husband also has type 1 diabetes, was working on the Burger King drive thru when Rebecca requested her order. Hearing her slurred speech and confusion over the intercom, Tina identified there was a problem and acted quickly.
Reporting what had happened in her Facebook post, Rebecca said: “As I stumbled through placing my order I mentioned to the voice on the speaker that I was diabetic and in need of food. Low blood sugar makes it difficult to think or act. I pulled up to the first window in order to pay for my food.
