An Alabama mother and her son had just joined a line of cars at the local drive-thru when the young boy noticed something odd. Then, just a few seconds later, he jumped out of the vehicle and sprinted towards the car in front. It seemed like he was desperate to get there in the nick of time.
This is the story of a nine-year-old boy named Landon Routzong, who hit headlines recently for something he did while out with his mom in his hometown of Troy, Alabama. His actions on that summer’s day in 2017 were so remarkable, in fact, that his story ended up causing a social media storm.
To begin with, though, it was just a normal day for Landon and his mom, Tara Parker Routzong. They’d headed out in the car to pick up some food and ended up at their local Chick-fil-A drive-thru restaurant out on Highway 231. As they joined the line of cars, however, Landon noticed something out of the ordinary.
