MEMPHIS (AP) — A Memphis pizza delivery driver who was concerned about a regular customer may have saved the elderly woman’s life.
Domino’s delivery driver Susan Guy told WMC-TV that Jean Wilson has ordered pizza every day for the past three years. She was so regular that the restaurant would make her large pepperoni pizza even before she called.
On Monday, Guy said her boss told her that Wilson hadn’t called in three days. Guy insisted on going to check on the woman. When no one came to the door, Guy asked a neighbor whether he had seen Wilson and then called 911.
Police broke the door down and found Wilson lying on the floor. She had fallen on Saturday and couldn’t get to a telephone to call for help.
Investigators said it’s possible her pizza-heavy diet may have saved her life.
Late Monday evening, Wilson was listed in non-critical condition at St. Francis Hospital.
