Domino’s Employees Call 911, Rescue Regular Customer After 11 Day Silence
Is there any business that would call the police if you didn't show up for 11 days? For Kirk Alexander of Salem, Oregon that business is Domino's and being a regular saved his life.
"He orders every day, every other day," Sarah Fuller, general manager for Domino's, said to KOIN. "His order pops up on the screen because he orders online. So we see it come across the screen and we’re like, ‘Oh, Kirk’s order.'"
When Kirk went a few days without ordering anything, the delivery drivers began to take notice. They looked at his account and saw that he had not made an order in over 11 days.
Fuller sent a driver to Kirk's house to check on him. When Tracey Hamblen got to the home he saw that the lights were on and there was noise coming from the TV. Paramedics found Kirk laying on the floor, they believe he had a stroke.
Fuller says that Kirk is "just an important customer that’s part of our family here at Domino’s. He orders all the time, so we know him. I think we were just doing our job checking in on someone we know who orders a lot. We felt like we needed to do something.”
