Domino's Pizza employees save the life of one of their regulars
Employees at a Domino’s pizza near Salem, Ore., are credited with saving the life of one of their customers. The customer, Kirk Alexander, had consistently ordered a meal from the Domino’s between 11 p.m. and midnight nearly every night, ABC News reported. When Alexander abruptly stopped ordering, the manager and assistant manager at Domino’s, Sarah Fuller and Jenny Seiber thought something might be wrong.
The managers sent one of their long-time drivers, Tracey Hamblen, to check on Alexander, according to KATU 2. Hamblen discovered that Alexander’s television and lights were on, but when he tried to get someone to come to the door, no one answered. Based on Hamblen’s intel, Fuller and Seiber decided to call the police.
"Well, I need some help on what to do. It could be an emergency ... OK, this is Domino's Pizza and we have a customer that usually orders like every night from us. And he hasn't ordered in 11 days," Hamblen said during the call to emergency services according to ABC News.
Police went to check on Alexander, who according to the Huffington Post has severe health issues and rarely leaves the house. When they arrived on the scene, the police heard Alexander yelling for help and in need of medical attention. Alexander is now in the hospital recovering.
Seiber said to KATU 2 that employees have been visiting Alexander in the hospital.
"We want to give him flowers, cards," she said. "Hopefully help him recover faster knowing that people do care about him."
Good Morning America rewarded the managers for their thoughtfulness and quick-thinking. Since they are real-life superheroes, they received a trip to Las Vegas and tickets to see “Captain America: Civil War.”
