Man’s Life Saved After Unusual Pattern In His Pizza Order
There’s definitely a good thing to be said about people that have habits they stick to.
Though it means they’re a little predictable, it also means that when something in their routine changes, people notice.
That’s precisely what happened when a man who ordered a pizza from Domino’s Pizza everyday for 10 years suddenly stopped ordering.
When Kirk Alexander stopped ordering his daily pizza, the staff at the store near Salem, Oregon became alarmed.
The 48-year-old man had ordered a pizza every day for more than 10 years, general manager of the store Sarah Fuller told KATU.
"Our delivery drivers he knows really well," she said, so when "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."
She sent longtime delivery driver, Tracey Hamblen, over to Alexander's house to check on him.
"He wasn't answering his door but there was lights on," Fuller said, "and you could hear the TV playing."
When Alexander didn't pick up the phone either, they called 911.
According to KPTV, deputies found Alexander on the ground "in need of immediate medical attention."
Update: Alexander was taken to hospital for treatment but is now said to be in a stable condition.
