The employees of a Domino’s in Salem, Oregon don’t make a lot of sandwiches in their pizza kitchen.
But that didn’t stop them this week from being heroes.
When a regular customer of theirs didn’t place his usual order, they sent a delivery driver to go check on him.
Kirk Alexander had ordered a pizza nearly every day from the Domino’s for ten years. But after a few days, when no call came, the team sent driver Tracey Hamblen to check on him. From KATU:
Over the weekend, [general manager Sarah] Fuller said, “A few of my drivers had mentioned that we hadn’t seen his order come across our screen in a while, so I went and looked up to see how long it had been since he last ordered and it was 11 days, which is not like him at all.”
Early Sunday morning Fuller asked Tracey Hamblen, a longtime delivery driver, to go over to Alexander’s house and check on him.
“He wasn’t answering his door but there was lights on,” Fuller said, “and you could hear the TV playing.”
The employees decided to call 911. When deputies arrived, they heard someone calling for help and, when they went inside, found Alexander in need of immediate medical assistance.
He was rushed to the hospital, but is now alright, listed in fair condition.
He should probably cut back on the pizza, though.
