SALEM, Ore. – Some concerned pizza delivery workers sensed something wasn’t right with one of their regular customers and alerted first responders. Deputies say their attentiveness saved his life.
For about seven years, 48-year-old Kirk Alexander has been a loyal customer at a Domino’s Pizza restaurant in Salem, Oregon.
He orders so regularly that the staff got worried when almost two weeks went by with no order from Kirk. It had been eleven days since they last heard from him.
“He orders everyday, every other day,” Sarah Fuller told KOIN. “His order pops up on the screen and we’re like, ‘Oh. Kirk’s order.'”
It had been eleven days since they last heard from him.
Fuller sent a driver to the house, just in case. When driver Tracey Hamblem arrived at Alexander’s house, he heard the TV, but Alexander didn’t answer the door.
The concerned crew called 911.
According to KATU, sheriff’s deputies who responded to the call could hear Alexander calling for help inside. He clearly needed immediate medical assistance. According to a post by the Marion County Sheriff’s Office in Oregon, the the pizza crew’s quick actions helped save Alexander.
He was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment. The Domino’s workers have been visiting him in the hospital, hoping that he makes a full recovery.
