Ohio Kidnap Case Hero Gets Burgers For Life


UPDATED: Thursday May 23, 2013 6:58 AM

The man who famously put down his Big Mac to help rescue three women held captive for a decade in a Cleveland house will never have to pay for another burger in his hometown.
    
Charles Ramsey has been promised free burgers for life at more than a dozen Cleveland-area restaurants.
    
The Plain Dealer reports that the restaurant where Ramsey worked as a dishwasher initially created a special burger in his honor, but eateries in the city decided a larger tribute was due.
    
Ramsey was called a hero after helping Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight break out of the west side house May 6. Arial Castro is now facing charges.
    
The newspaper said Ramsey was traveling and would get his "Chuck Card" when he returns.
