Ohio Kidnapping Case Hero Rewarded With Free McDonald’s For One Year


Charles Ramsey, the Ohio man who famously helped free three women held for years in a Cleveland house by their kidnappers, is getting an actual prize – McDonald’s will give the man one year of free meal at the fast-food restaurant.

Ramsey was called a hero after helping Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight break out of neighbor Ariel Catro‘s house in Cleveland on May 6. The women have been held in the house for years against their will.

So, what does McDonald’s have to do with this? Apparently, Ramsey was eating a McDonald’s meal when the event happened. He gave McDonald’s some free publicity during an interview with a local T.V station and the video went viral. Watch video after the cut…

The day after the women were freed, McDonald’s said on twitter: “We salute the courage of Ohio kidnap victims & respect their privacy. Way to go Charles Ramsey — we’ll be in touch.”

Indeed, they were in touch!

Ramsey has also been promised free burgers for life at several Cleveland-area restaurants.

With these many “hamburger salutes,” Ramsey better find some strict exercise regimen to offset the calories from burgers so he wouldn’t need a heart valve replacement anytime soon.

In this case, no good deed goes unpunished!
