(KSL) Police are crediting two employees and a customer at a Taco Bell in South Salt Lake, Utah with saving an infant from danger in the drive-thru line on Monday.

South Salt Lake police spokesman Gary Keller said two employees noticed a car holding up the drive-thru line around 7:30 p.m.

“They went to investigate the situation and found an intoxicated male that had passed out in the drive-thru with a 9-month-old infant in the vehicle,” Keller said.

The driver of the 2008 BMW sedan stopped his vehicle before reaching the drive-thru window and blocked the lane for a considerable amount of time, police said.

Two Taco Bell employees became concerned and went out to the vehicle. That’s when the employees discovered the driver of the vehicle was slumped over the steering wheel and was initially unresponsive.

“They reported a strong smell of alcohol,” Keller said.
