Utah Locksmith Saves Kidnap Victim


A woman being held in her Midway, Utah, home was rescued Friday after she wrote "911" on her hand to signal that she needed help.

Sheriff's deputies were called to the home by a locksmith who'd been hired to change the lock on her front door, according to a report from the sheriff's office.

"Being a locksmith, I have been involved in some, some domestic situations, but nothing quite like this," he said. The locksmith, identified only as "Greg" said there was a man in the house, who "acted suspiciously, staying close to the female and only allowing her to have her phone with his permission,"
