Free Burgers for Life: Awarded to Charles Ramsey

by at . Comments

Charles Ramsey will never pay for a burger in Cleveland again.

The man who helped free Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight from their captors in early May - and whose subsequent interview (below) made him a viral sensation - has received a card that's good at over a dozen local restaurants, according to The Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Ramsay mentioned McDonald's in his account of the rescue with reporters, leading many in the area to push that chain to honor the local hero.

So Scott Kuhn of the Driftwood Restaurant Group went ahead and came up with "The Chuck Card," which he says is "good for life" at many eateries in the city.

"We want to honor our local hero with local food," Kuhn told the newspaper. "He stopped his meal midway through to help those women. We're now making sure he has other opportunities to go out and fully enjoy his burger."

What a happy, delicious ending to a very sad story.
