Domino's Pizza Employees Save Customer's Life After He Didn't Place Daily Order

Kirk Alexander of Salem, Oregon, has ordered a pizza from the chain almost everyday since 2009, according to the Huffington Post.

Alexander is such a loyal customer that many of the location's employees know him well like general manager, Sarah Fuller.

"He orders every day, every other day," Fuller told 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.'"

But when Fuller's staff mentioned they hadn't seen his order come across the screen in a while she had a feeling something might be wrong.

She checked the restaurant's database and saw he hadn't ordered in 11 days, "which is not like him at all," she said.

Fuller sent one of her delivery drivers, Tracy Hamblen, to Alexander's house to check on him. When she arrived she heard Alexander screaming for help and called the police.

Alexander was rushed to the hospital where he was treated for a severe health issues.

Marion County Sheriff's Office thanked Hamblen for helping save Alexander's life.

But Fuller said it was just a part of the job.

"[Alexander 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," she said.
