UPS Driver Saves Woman After Finding 'Help' Message on Package
UPS drivers are very busy this time of year, but one driver took his responsibilities to the next level.
Authorities are crediting an unnamed UPS driver for saving a Missouri woman's life.
Officials said a woman was being held captive in her own home in Robertsville, Mo., by her husband, who also allegedly was beating and sexually assaulting her.
On Tuesday, the UPS driver showed up to pick up a package, and that package had a life-saving message.
"Contact 911," a note on the package said.
The driver called, and a SWAT team was sent to the house, where the woman's husband, James Tyler Jordan, was arrested.
Police said he was charged with domestic assault, sodomy without consent, felonious restraint, unlawful use of a weapon and endangering the welfare of a child. He is currently being held on a $100,000 bond.
According to court documents, Jordan was holding a gun to his wife's head threatening to kill her and himself when the UPS driver arrived. The woman was able to write the message on the package as Jordan stood behind her with the gun.
A toddler was reportedly found in the home as well and was said to be locked in a bedroom without food or water for over 12 hours.
UPS released a statement thanking the driver for his assistance in the arrest.
"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."
