Joann Leser has been working at the same restaurant for decades – but on June 2, 2018, she did a shift there that she won’t be forgetting anytime soon. You see, the waitress spotted a customer speeding towards the bathroom – and soon realized that it was up to her to save the woman’s life.
Leser was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota. A former student at North Hennepin Community College, she now resides in Coon Rapids. And she has been working at the Crystal Café in the town of Crystal for over two decades.
The restaurant is located in a strip mall and is popular for its traditional U.S. food, especially all-day breakfasts. It has even made the news on a couple of occasions. For instance, back in 2014 the eatery had to close temporarily owing to a fire that resulted in more than $100,000 worth of destruction.
