The entire nation has been glued to their television sets watching the unbelievable story unfold about the three missing Cleveland women found alive after being held captive for ten years.

The story thankfully has a happy ending for the rescued women Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight, who have been held since they went missing in their teens or early 20s, reports CBS Cleveland, all thanks to a neighbor who heard Berry’s cries for help.

The man, Charles Ramsey, has become somewhat of an Internet sensation after his colorful interview explaining how he found the missing women went viral.

“I heard screaming,” he said according to Cleveland’s NewsNet5. “I’m eating my McDonald’s. I come outside. I see this girl going nuts trying to get out of a house. I go on the porch and she said ‘Help me get out. I’ve been here a long time.’ I figure it was domestic violence dispute.”

“I knew something was wrong when a little pretty white girl ran into a black man’s arms,” Ramsey continued. “Something is wrong here.”
