Domino's workers in Oregon got worried after a daily customer hadn't ordered in 11 days. A driver went to Kirk Alexander's house. After attempts to reach him failed, 911 was called. He's recovering.

RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne. In times of crisis, we rely on friends and family, or in the case of one pizza lover, the delivery person. Managers at a Domino's in Salem, Ore., were worried. One of their daily customers hadn't ordered a pizza in 11 days. So a driver was sent to check on him, and the lights were on, but no answer. After a call to 911, Kirk Alexander was taken to the hospital, but was soon enjoying visits from the folks at Domino's. It's MORNING EDITION.
