A Florida woman was being held hostage in her home by her boyfriend on Tuesday, and a Pizza Hut helped save her life.
Cheryl Treadway and her kids were being threatened by a man named Ethan Nickerson at knifepoint and were not allowed to leave.
Nickerson also took away her cell phone, but he let her use it briefly to order a pizza, according toMyFox Tampa.
That’s when she used some quick thinking to write “911 hostage help” in the comments section of her order.
A chef at the Pizza Hut noticed the strange message and the restaurant quickly alerted the police.
The suspect was then arrested and charged, while Treadway and her kids escaped to safety.
This story is very similar to another real-life incident which was used in a Superbowl ad this year to raise awareness about domestic violence.
