A California gas station cashier has been credited with helping a woman get away from her kidnappers.

Savannah Pritchett was working at Triple R Gas and Mart in Waterford, east of Modesto, when the woman came in asking for help, according to KCRA.

The woman said she told her captors she needed to use the restroom and convinced them to pull over at the gas station.

She then went inside, and after telling Pritchett of her ordeal, was locked inside the restroom, where she used Pritchett’s phone to call 911.

“Her being able to get this victim into a secured restroom with a phone and being able to contact law enforcement very well may have saved her life,” said Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Department Sgt. Tom Letras.
