What started out as a normal Uber driving shift for Keith Avila turned into an incredible rescue of a 16-year-old girl from a child sex trafficking ring.
Keith was working on Monday night in Sacramento, California when he picked up two women and a young girl. While driving them to a Holiday Inn, he started hearing the adults openly instruct the teen on how to interact with “John” at the hotel. Their instructions reportedly included telling her to “pat him down for weapons while hugging him” and “get the donation from him” before anything happened.
Keith, being the smart man that he is, dropped the women off, drove around the corner, and called the cops.
Police officers arrived at the scene in minutes, arresting the two pimps – Destiny Pettway and Maria Westley – and the man that they were meeting. The teen was apparently a runaway who was then rescued and taken into temporary housing while law enforcement located her family.

In this case, he’s a “good man” who could have turned a blind eye and deaf ear.
Now I hope these ne’er-do-wells get the proverbial book thrown at them.
If he doesn’t get a reward, I hope the Universe let’s him win the Lotto.
Uber should be proud to have such a driver.
