toe Atlanta, Aug 5 (THAINDIAN NEWS) A 39 year old woman - Amy Windom had her toes and her laptop to thank when she was tied to a bed by an apparent armed man. Amy tells the police that she used her toes to type an instant message to her boyfriend to call the police for help.

When the police and her boyfriend came in, they found the woman tied onto her bed.

According to Amy, at about 4:15 am, she realized that her laptop was at the foot end of her bed and that was when it occurred to her that she could use her foot to get help. She managed to open the laptop with her toe and when she managed to unlock the computer, she realized her Internet was on. That was the moment when she realized that she could get some help and escape from her abductors.

She managed to send a message to her boyfriend using the laptop’s power cable to type instead of her toes because her toe was too big for the laptop keys. According to News.com.au the Atlanta police Captain Van Hobbs said that, “Her laptop was on her bed with her and she was able to use her toes to type a message to her boyfriend and let him know what had happened.”
