(Newser) – When 82-year-old Jean Wilson fell at home and couldn’t get up, just one person came to her aid: her pizza delivery driver. Wilson has ordered a large pepperoni pizza every single day for the past three years, and Domino’s employee Susan Guy often delivers it. Guy realized something was wrong when her boss told her Wilson hadn’t ordered in three days—and she insisted to her boss that she be allowed to check on the elderly customer.

"He was like, 'Naw, you don't have to do that,' and I said, 'Yeah I do. Clock me out if that's what you gotta do,'" Guy tells WMC-TV. After driving to Wilson’s house Monday, Guy couldn’t get her to open the door, so she asked a neighbor for help and called 911. Police found Wilson lying on the floor. She’s now in the hospital in non-critical condition, and investigators say her consistent pizza routine—and her alert driver—probably saved her life.
