A woman has recently shared a tip online that saved her from a potential attack while she was staying at a hotel and it’s frightened a lot of people.
The video showed a man with a long piece of wire with a hook at the end…
He was using the handmade contraption to try and unlock the room door from the outside.
Josie Bowers, a nineteen-year-old Canadian woman, duetted the video and recalled a similar incident that happened to her while she was staying at a Hilton hotel in Ocean City.
She explained how it was “the scariest experience of her life.”
When other people heard the story, they were left as equally as distraught…
Speaking of the incident, Josie said this:
“I was staying in Ocean City, at the Hilton, right there on the waterfront, and I went to go shower as the rest of my family was down at the beach.
“I was by myself.”
“Before I could shower I heard these noises, I went to go see what it was and it was this contraption. I was just standing there in my towel and this man opened the door.”
In a part 2 video, she revealed some more details of the terrifying event.
“My main thought was holy s*** I’m in a towel right now and someone is about to break in, and get me. So the door opens a crack, and I just slammed it back shut. And put the deadbolt on.”
Josie said the guy at the door was claiming to be “services,” who have come “to fix the door.”
“Little sketchy to me,” she said.
Nonetheless, she was curious.
“So they tell me your keycard is broken and we need to get into the room and fix your keypad for you. And so I open the door a tad bit, to see if it was a worker. It clearly wasn’t, they were in jeans and a T-shirt. Hilton keeps it pretty classy, not the attire.”
She then shared the tip that her dad, who is a police officer, taught her and it helped save her life.
“So I think I’m very smart for this one, my stepdad is a police officer, he taught me never to let people know you’re alone,” she said. “I yelled, ‘hey dad, there’s someone here to fix the door.'” As soon as they thought that I wasn’t alone, and potentially my dad was there. They ran, they were gone.”
So obviously, they weren’t there to fix the door.
She then addressed the comments that were asking her why she didn’t just grab the wire or try and call the police.
But it’s the same as any other anxiety-inducing situation…
“I didn’t have time to process anything, but my main thought was I’m in a towel I’m literally naked and do they have weapons, if I stop them are they going to get mad, hurt me? I wasn’t really sure of the situation. I was only fifteen. I wasn’t thinking that fast,” she said.
“Also didn’t have time to call the police…” she said, adding she didn’t have cell phone service anyway.
But in the end, Josie was glad to have experienced it so she could warn others about the dangers of hotel room intruders.
“I’m glad I had this experience so I can teach people about it. Obviously, I’m safe but it could have ended up a lot worse. Be safe, you can get door stoppers, always put on the deadbolt.”
Stay safe out there guys.
