Of course, this wasn’t an everyday occurrence for Purdy and quite frankly it stumped him. “I wasn’t sure what to think at first,” he confessed to Today in November 2017. As a result, he pricked his ears once more, and, sure enough, he heard the cries again.
Worryingly, the voice that Purdy could hear didn’t sound wholly human. However, it was clear from the tone that the person behind it was in distress. So the delivery driver decided to call his wife for some advice.
Upon hearing the unnerving situation her husband had found himself in, Purdy’s wife wasted no time in calling the police. “My husband is a delivery driver,” she told the 911 dispatcher, according to Inside Edition. “He just called me saying that one of the doors he just knocked on, there was somebody saying ‘help me’ on the inside.”
