AA ticket agent Denice Miracle is being credited as the miracle that saved two teenage girls from a potential life of slavery.
Miracle is an AA ticket agent at Sacramento International Airport. Her suspicions were aroused when two teenage girls checked in for a trip to New York. Neither had ID, neither had much baggage, the tickets were in first class, and were only one-way.
Checking on who purchased the tickets, Miracle noted the name of the credit card holder did not match the last name either of the girls had provided.
In an interview with KOVR, Miracle explained why she called police.
It was a first-class ticket. It was very expensive. I told a supervisor, ‘I’m going to call the sheriff. It just doesn’t feel right to me.
Sheriffs arrived at the airport and spoke to the girls. The teens admitted they were going to New York to “model” for a guy they met on Instagram named “Drey”. He had promised them $2,000 each.
At this point, sheriffs were suspicious but reached out to Drey on social media. Within minutes of reaching out to him, all his social media accounts were shut down.
Police explained to the girls that they were likely to be victimized. The teenagers pushed back, but were shocked to learn they had no return tickets from New York.
The teen’s parents were notified…they had been told the girl’s were spending the night at a friends house.
Sometimes being nosy is a good thing. Miracle could have just “minded her own business” but she likely saved the two young women from an unpleasant weekend and potentially even slavery.
