Christian Hathaway was shopping at a local CVS in St. Cloud, Florida at around 9pm when the store closed with no warning. She ran to the front of the store and watched as the big steel gate closed for the night.
She tried yelling for help, even banging on the doors, but no one was around to help. So, she called 911…
Dispatcher: “911 What’s your emergency?”
Caller: “I just have a question. I was in the CVS, and I think they just locked me in the building.”
Dispatcher: “Ok is anyone inside the building beside yourself?”
Caller: “No, I started screaming, ‘Hello! is anyone in here? Hello?’ And no one is in this building, but the alarm is going off.”
Dispatcher: “Ok an officer will be dispatched as soon as possible.”
An officer arrived but could not open the gate. 45 min the manager arrived and was able to free Christian and gave her a $100 gift card for the trouble.
CVS released this statement, “We are following up with the store team to ensure that, store closing procedures are followed properly in order to prevent something like this from happening again.”
