A fast-food worker is being hailed as a hero for helping a YouTube shooting victim until emergency medical services arrived. 

Michael Finney was working his shift at Carl’s Jr. when a woman who was shot in the incident came into his store with a gunshot wound to her calf, USA Today reported.

Finney was on a bathroom break when the shooting occurred and didn’t realize anything had happened until he came out of the restroom, USA Today reported. “I came out and that’s when I saw her,” he said. The woman was helped to a booth by patrons and other employees, and Finney ran to the office and found a bungee cord that he used as a tourniquet to slow down the bleeding until EMS arrived.

Kevin Sanderlin was in the restaurant with his wife when the victim came into the restaurant bleeding, CBS San Francisco reported.

“He deserves to be recognized,” Sanderlin said. “He saved someone’s life.” Sanderlin also said the woman was “surprisingly calm” until EMS arrived.

But Finney has been humble about his actions.

“I really don’t want to talk about it,” he said, USA Today reported. “All I was trying to do was stay professional, you know I have a job and I represent the store.” He also said he was trying to become a manager at the restaurant and would eventually like to go to college for auto repair.

“I’m nothing right now but I want to work my way up in life,” he said, USA Today reported.

The shooting occurred at YouTube headquarters in San Bruno on Tuesday afternoon, when female shooter Nasim Najafi Aghdam opened fire and injured four employees before taking her own life.
