Teen Girl Outsmarted A Hotel Invader Following Her Cop Dad’s Advice

Stay safe! Deadbolt on and never let them know you’re alone.

This teen girl survived what could’ve been a really dreadful experience during her vacation on her own, thanks to her dad’s advice. Josie Bowers from Canada was on vacation to Ocean City, Maryland, USA, and was alone in her hotel room when suddenly, a man tried to break in.

She shared her experience on TikTok, and it has been viewed more than 10.8 million times.

“I’m really glad I had this experience so I can teach people about it. Obviously, I’m safe, but it could have ended up a lot worse,” Josie said. “Be safe. You can get door stoppers, always put on the deadbolt.”

“The night we had left my little sisters in the room with the door locked. There were 3 of them; my sister was 13. She was not that young. But we still left them alone, thinking they were safe because the door locks from the outside,” she continued.

“If they were sleeping, they wouldn’t have time to react to that, and we don’t know what could’ve gone down.”

Josie opened with a horrifying soundtrack to accompany her story.

She emphasized that age factor and being inexperienced render her unable to make quick decisions.

She was obviously scared and a little panicked.

But Josie reacted fast from preventing them from entering: slam the door shut and deadbolt on!

Here’s where Josie put her stepdad’s advice to practice:

Hotel theft is more common than one might think. Yet, Mark Ellwood, who spends much time living in one (and caught teens rummaging through his belongings in his room red-handed once) shared, “The lack of reliable data makes the topic a murky one.”

He explained that “hotels prefer to discourage guests from turning the incident into a statistic,” and they tend to succeed at doing that.
