Hostage saves her and her children’s lives via Pizza Hut app
Never has a comment section been more important.Pizza Hut's smartphone app allows you to order food and have it delivered without having to make a single phone call. It also allows you to add any extra comments in your order. You could add a blurb about wanting them to go light on the cheese. A Florida woman took advantage of this comment section by alerting Pizza Hut about a dangerous situation her and her children were in.
Cheryl Treadway utilized that comment section to ask for help because her boyfriend was holding her and her children hostage. The comment read: Please help. Get 911 to me. According to WFLA, Pizza Hut employees recognized the order as being from a frequent customer. But, the comments were out of the ordinary so they called the Highlands County Sheriff's Office to investigate the situation.

When the police arrived at the home, the woman told deputies that her boyfriend was inside with her children and armed with a knife. All victims are reportedly safe and unharmed. Ethan Earl Nickerson, the woman's boyfriend, was arrested and charged with aggravated assault with a weapon without intent to kill, battery, false imprisonment and obstructing justice by depriving communication to law enforcement.
