Kidnapping Attempt in Mexico City
A business executive is travelling by vehicle to a meeting in Mexico City. His vehicle stops at traffic lights on a busy street. The car is ambushed by armed men who attempt to pull the businessman and his driver out of the vehicle.
During the struggle the businessman presses the panic button on his concealed personal tracking device before he is dragged out of his vehicle and pushed into the back of the kidnapper’s car.
The kidnapping took as little as 2 minutes to carry out. A panic alert was raised in less than 30 seconds.
The security firm providing protection services to the businessman’s company are made immediately aware of his situation. An alarm sounds in the control room, and the security manager receives a panic alert SMS on his mobile phone. The location of the incident is detailed on digital mapping and is updated every minute. The control room can also hear what is going on through an embedded microphone on the executive’s tracking device.
Because the tracking device constantly updates the control room of the executive’s position they can immediately direct the armed response team and local police patrol to intercept the kidnapper’s vehicle. The assailants are overpowered and arrested and the business executive and his driver are rescued unharmed.
