Web Exclusive: Cleveland who helped kidnapping victims getting burgers for life

Posted: Updated:

(CNN) - The man who helped rescue three kidnapped women in Ohio will enjoy free burgers for the rest of his life! More than a dozen restaurants in the Cleveland area have pledged to give Charles Ramsey a free burger whenever he stops in. One restaurant even created a special "Ramsey Burger" in his honor. To get the meal, all Ramsey has to do is flash his very own "Chuck Card" at the participating restaurants. You may recall, Ramsey said he was eating a Big Mac from McDonalds when he saw Amanda Berry "going nuts" trying to get out of the home of Ariel Castro. His actions helped rescue Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight from nearly 10-years in captivity. So far, no word from McDonald's. The company previously tweeted it would "be in touch" with Ramsey.
