A UPS driver is being called a hero for saving a woman’s life.
An unnamed UPS driver rescued a Missouri woman who was held hostage, beaten, and sexually assaulted by her husband in their home in Robertsville, Missouri, for 15 hours.
The driver called police after noticing an SOS plea scrawled on a package he had picked up at the Jordans’ home. The note read: “Contact 911.”
The driver called the cops, and a SWAT team descended on the house, where they learned that James Tyler Jordan had beaten and raped his wife. Their three-year-old toddler was locked in a bedroom without food or water for 15 hours, KMOV-TV reported.
James Jordan is charged with domestic assault, felonious restraint, unlawful use of a weapon, sodomy, and endangering the welfare of a child.
Both the police and UPS praised the driver for helping rescue the woman. “He was a huge help,” said Sargeant T.J. Wild of the Franklin County Sheriff’s Department.
UPS also released a statement thanking the veteran employee for helping a woman in need:
We are grateful this UPS driver with more than a decade of service followed protocol when he saw a customer in distress and contacted authorities after he saw her message to contact 9-1-1.
Our drivers are very familiar with their routes, and are trained to be aware of their surroundings and respond to requests for assistance.
