A food delivery rider's job usually follows a regular pattern. Pick the food order from a restaurant and deliver it to the customer. Except for the food orders and the locations - nothing else changes. But this wasn't a usual food delivery for this rider who found himself in the middle of a high-speed chase on the job one day. Little did he know that a simple pizza delivery will turn him into a hero of sorts. But that was his lucky day. With his quick thinking and heroic action, he helped the cops get hold of the fleeing suspect. The video of the incident has gone viral and the delivery man is being hailed as a saviour.
The delivery driver has been recognised as Tyler Morrell, an employee of Cocco's Pizza in Pennsylvania. Just when he stood outside the customer's house to deliver her pizza, he heard a car crash and police sirens. The customer realized, "That's a high-speed chase." The visibly shaken Morrell turned around to see police cars cornering the suspect's car but the suspect fled out of the car and just as he was crossing Morrell, the brave driver stuck his foot out and tripped him over, all while holding the pizza box straight. The cops finally rushed to nab him.
The entire incident was captured in the security video installed at the gate of the customer's house. It was posted by the restaurant (Cocco's Pizza) on their Facebook page. "Special shout-out to our delivery driver Tyler, who assisted the Brookhaven police today, and STILL delivered the food unharmed!" read the caption of the video.
