ATLANTA (AP) - An Atlanta woman who used her feet to type a computer message to her boyfriend asking for help after she was robbed and bound says she persuaded the robber not to steal her laptop.
The woman, 39-year-old Amy Windom, appeared on NBC's "Today" show Wednesday and described her ordeal.
She says a robber entered her home early Tuesday and bound her to her bed. Windom says the robber left her computer after she told him it has a tracking device.
She says she propped up the laptop and after realizing she couldn't type with her feet, wedged the power cord between her toes and produced messages. She got her boyfriend's attention with an instant message and he sent the police to her home.
