A UPS driver became a hero after he read a message on a package and responded quickly.
The unidentified driver was picking up a package from a home in Robertsville, Missouri, when he noticed the words “Contact 911” written on the outside of the box.
By doing just that, he possibly saved the life of a woman who had been held captive in her home by her husband and beaten for over 15 hours.
Franklin County Sheriff’s Department Sergeant T.J. Wild told KMOV that the driver “made a huge difference.”
Court documents showed James Jordan had begun abusing his wife Monday night. Jordan, 33, wouldn’t allow his wife to leave or use the phone. Records indicated he not only beat her, but allegedly put a gun to her head and threatened to kill her.
The couple’s 3-year-old child was reportedly locked in his room with no food or water during the ordeal, court records revealed.
KMOV reported the UPS driver arrived at the couple’s house Tuesday morning after to pick up a package. As he took the package from the woman at the front door, she wrote on it, “Contact 911,” investigators said.
After leaving the residence, the driver wasted no time making the important call.
KSBW reported that a SWAT team was sent to the house after the driver called police.
Jordan was charged with domestic assault, sodomy, unlawful use of a weapon and endangering the welfare of a child. His bond was set at $100,000.
UPS released a statement and commended the driver, noting he had been with the company for more than 10 years and followed protocol when he saw a customer in distress.
