Following Hurricane Matthew, a family who couldn’t get in touch with their grandmother, Claire Olsen, became so concerned that they decided to order pizza for her.
Not living near their grandmother, who lives alone in Palm Coast, Florida, the family became very concerned when they hadn’t heard for her in two days.
"Well, I talked to her on Friday morning, and she had just lost power, and she said, 'This is a nightmare,'" her grandson Eric Olsen told ABC News.
Explaining how he had tried calling the police and sheriff’s department to no avail, Eric had a lightbulb moment when he thought about ordering her pizza.
“If they can deliver it, then I know she’s alive.”
Writing special instructions to Papa John’s, Eric asked the delivery man to call his phone when the pizza was delivered.
Describing the moment he heard his grandmother’s voice, Eric continued: "Police and fire couldn't do it, but Papa John's got there in 30 minutes and put the cellphone to her ear."
His genius pizza idea has left a few scratching their heads, but to Eric there was no other option.
"People are asking why I didn't call the police and ask them to do a wellness check, but I did. Trust me, Papa John's was a last resort."
