When a Florida woman and her children were being held hostage at knifepoint by her boyfriend, Ethan Nickerson, she used the Pizza Hut app to send a message to authorities after he briefly let her use the phone to place an order over the Internet.
The woman thought fast and included the messages “Please help. Get 911 to me” and “911hostage help!” in the comments section for the order. The local Pizza Hut saw the messages, called the police, and the situation was resolved without any injuries.
