When Chick-fil-A does a rescue, it does it like no one else.
On Monday, a Houston-area Chick-fil-A received a call from two of its regular customers who had been stranded in their home by Hurricane Harvey.
The water was rising fast, and they knew they could no longer remain in their home.
“We had to get out of there so I called Chick-fil-A, now that sounds kind of funny,” J.C. Spencer said in an interview Wednesday on Good Morning America.
While explaining their plight, the restaurant knew what they needed — breakfast with a side order of rescue.

“I ordered two grilled chicken burritos with extra egg and a boat. And can you believe that one of the managers of Chick-fil-A, she sent her husband to pick us up and we are so grateful,” he said.
Not long after the call, the husband of the yet-unidentified restaurant manager arrived at their waterlogged home on a Jet Ski.
“Karen jumped on the back of a Jet Ski and I jumped on the back of another one and they evacuated us to higher ground,” Spencer said.

Karen Spencer said it was one part “oh well, here we go!,” one part “happy to be alive” and two parts, “I can’t believe I’m leaving my flooded house in a Jet Ski.”
The couple was fortunate enough that on Tuesday, the waters had receded enough in their area to allow them to return home to grab some possessions they had not taken on that first trip.
J.C. Spencer said he grabbed his wallet and wedding ring.
“I couldn’t save my house, but I have to save my marriage,” he told ABC.
