Domino's Employee Investigates After Noticing Regular Employee Hasn't Called In A Week

A man who was a regular at Domino's Pizza in Salem had not been in for almost two weeks. Restaurant workers became concerned when they hadn't seen him in a while, so they sent a delivery person to check on him. That call ended up saving the man's life.

According to Sarah Fuller, the manager of the Domino's restaurant, Kirk Alexander has been coming in almost every day for over five years. That's why they were so curious about him when he suddenly stopped ordering.

“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,'” said Fuller.

After workers began mentioning they hadn't heard from Kirk in a while, they checked his account on the computer. Fuller explains, “We saw the last order was 11 days ago. We knew something wasn’t right, that wasn’t normal at all.”

Tracey Hamblen, a Domino's delivery person, has been to Alexander's house to bring him food on a number of occasions. She stopped by this time just to check up on him. It's a good thing she did.

Hamblen found the lights on and could hear the television playing inside, but when she knocked on the door there was no answer. She tried calling Alexander, but the call went directly to voicemail. That's when she became concerned and called emergency services.

Paramedics burst into Alexander's home and found him lying on the floor. They believe he had a stroke at some point and they rushed him to the hospital.

“It’s crazy. It wasn’t what I was really expecting would happen at all,” said Fuller.

The restaurant employees refuse to take any credit for the rescue. “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.”
