Watch: Woman being attacked is saved by telemarketer 900 miles away

An Oregon woman is thanking her lucky stars that she received a phone call from someone we all find annoying — a telemarketer — because it ended up saving her life.

Fox News correspondent Trace Gallagher described the incident on “The Real Story,” via Fox News.


A Las Vegas telemarketer was making cold sales pitches for Americare Health and Nutrition when one of her calls was accidentally picked up by someone who was clearly in trouble. She was being beaten 900 miles away.

The telemarketer alerted her supervisor, Tina Garcia.

“It was very very frightening,” Garcia said. “That young lady was helpless. You could actually hear the blows as if he was hitting a punching bag and she was terrified.”

She called the Linn County Sheriff’s Department and gave the dispatcher the woman’s phone number. Deputies were tracked it to the woman’s address. When they arrived, they found the suspect, Walter Ruck, behind the woman with his hands around her throat.

Ruck was arrested and charged with assault and strangulation.
