An Uber driver in California decided to sign up for the inventive new job as a great way to make some extra cash on the side and perhaps enjoy a few interesting experiences. However, he had no clue what he was in for until he overheard what was being said in the backseat of his car and turned around in horror, realizing who he was driving and where they were headed.
Keith Avila was sent to pick up three young women who seemed like average girls until halfway through the drive when he realized what was really going on. He was just doing his job and not wanting to be too nosey when his ear caught one word they kept repeating. That’s when it hit him, and he decided to do what he thought needed to be done.
“I can’t just drive away. I mean, of course not. That’s not even an option,” Avila said, according to ABC13. “Honestly, I didn’t think about it. They said what they said, and it’s one of those things that you just do.”
The driver kept hearing one woman instructing the younger girl with her to be sure to get the “donation” before going inside. Since Avila was taking the pair to the Holiday Inn in Elk Grove, he immediately realized he was unknowingly assisting in sex trafficking since the girl going inside was clearly a minor.
“‘You’re gonna hug them, you’re gonna pat them down, make sure they don’t have no weapons,” the driver overheard Destiny Pettway and Maria Westly instructing the victim, who was found to be just 16 years old. “You ask him, ‘Do you have any weapons?’ And then ask for the donations. Say, ‘Do you have my donation?’ Get the donation first. And then before you go in and do anything, get the donation first.'”
Rather than ignoring what seemed obvious and not involving himself in other people’s business, Avila proved himself to be a hero and called the police to the hotel. There, officers were able to save this girl from sex slavery because of Avila, and the three predators were taken into custody.
The driver doesn’t consider what he did to be anything more than what anyone else would have done in this situation, but that’s unfortunately not the case. Not everyone is willing to take a risk like this for a stranger and many second-guess what they heard. He knew what he saw and how it made him feel. Then, he did something about it, and this girl was rescued because of it.
