How this online game saved the life of an 80-year-old woman


A popular browser-based word puzzle game known as wordle is witnessing a meteoric rise amid the pandemic. For those who don’t know, it’s a game where you have to correctly guess a pre-selected word by making random word guesses and helping yourself with hints. Invented by software engineer Josh Wardle, the game was recently acquired by The New York Times. Amazingly, the game also saved the life of an 80-year-old woman in the United States. As Mashable reports, an elderly woman, Denyse Holt, was held hostage by a man for 17 hours in her own home. The kidnapper entered the woman’s bedroom in Chicago, Illinois while she was in bed. The woman was saved thanks to Wordle.
According to Mashable, Holt and his daughter used to share the global response of the day daily. The daughter, who lives in Seattle, suspected something was wrong and contacted police when she did not receive Wordle’s response from her mother that day. Police investigated Holt’s daughter’s complaint and found that the woman had been held hostage. As the New York Post reports, cops noticed a broken window and nabbed the intruder after some resistance. The intruder was later identified as 32-year-old James H. Davis III.
