May 14th, 2021

We’ve all heard the cliché fairytales about damsels in distress being saved by a handsome prince.

But Hailey Logan’s story is real.

Except her handsome prince is a New York City firefighter named David, and it was TikTok that lead him to her instead of a glass slipper.

Their affair began when David rescued Hailey from a stalled elevator in an office building.

She shared a video of the rescue where firefighters bang on the elevator door and use a tool to get it to open.

“Oh my God…fire department? Seriously? Ohhh my gah,” her video says. “I almost cancelled this appointment today too. Big metal elevator and they can’t get out. The door is like shut. I can see through the peephole.”

The doors finally open to reveal a very handsome firefighter behind it.

Some on the internet seemed to think this indicated that Hailey had been friend-zoned. But making new friends is awesome too.

“I’m so shocked, I’m shook that this video blew up the way that it did. I cannot believe how many of you are invested in this, so I felt like I needed to give you all an update.”
