Pizza Customer Gets A Special Delivery That May Have Saved His Life

An Oregon man who ordered almost daily from the same Domino's restaurant for the last seven years didn't call in for almost two weeks. The pizza restaurant employees became worried about him and went to check on him. He's lucky they did.

A Domino's Pizza employee in Salem went by the home of a usually loyal customer to see if everything was all right. The lights were on and even the television appeared to be playing, so she knocked.

When no one answered, the delivery woman called 911. Police came in and found Kirk Alexander, 47, on the floor of his home in a medical emergency. He was rushed to the hospital for a serious condition, but details have not been released.

Employees at the Pizza shop say they were surprised when Alexander didn't order for 11 days straight. "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 general manager Sarah Fuller. "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.”

A Domino's spokesperson said the company is 'proud of our team members' for helping a regular customer. "We have many stories of how our stores have helped regular customers in ways that are big and small over the years, which is a level of customer service and commitment to our communities that we hope everyone will emulate."

Who knew ordering pizza might make the difference in a life and death situation?
