GRAND HAVEN, Mich. — The Grand Haven McDonald’s on Beacon Blvd. honored two employees for their recent role in helping a customer in distress and perhaps saving his life. According to a news release Timothy Stanton, 49, of Allendale, had stopped by the Grand Haven McDonald’s and experienced a seizure from an unknown cause. Two McDonald’s employees, Chelsea Winkelman and Jane Hinternish, recognizing the severity of the situation called 911 and then worked to stabilize Stanton until medical help arrived.

Stanton’s brother Larry Stanton and his wife Sue, both of Allendale, were on hand to thank Winkelman and Hinternish for helping Larry’s brother. Tim’s seizure led to the discovery of a tumor between his brain and skull, which was removed recently. He is recovering and in rehabilitation and his prognosis is good, said his brother Larry.

Stanton’s family commended the two for their prompt and alert reaction and wanted them to be recognized for efforts “beyond the call of duty.”
