It’s with good reason that we are often told to trust our instinct. Some people have the gift of spotting that something is amiss from what can be a normal setting or a normal turn of events for everyone else. Very often, such careful evaluation of events can save someone’s life. At least that’s what happened to TikTok user @jessicahiggs3 who is a delivery worker at a grocery delivery company called Instacart.

A lot of people believe that it is a good thing to follow your instincts or that “sixth sense” as it may help to avoid dangerous situations

The woman named Jessica Higgs, who now has almost 17 million views on her TikTok video, reminded us why it’s important to react to things if you see something weird happening. The TikToker then continued sharing a recent incident she got involved in and how happy she was to have trusted her instincts that saved a person’s life. The woman was working that day as a delivery person for Instacart. She received a request to deliver groceries for an older man who couldn’t shop himself, so his daughter would order Instacart for him.

In the video, Jessica shared that after she goes to a certain place, she has to leave the order and take a picture of it, revealing that workers are forbidden to go inside the house. So the woman went to leave the order and the man came to the door. Instead of leaving, she decided to help him with his groceries because she was convinced that something was wrong and that the man looked sick. So she went inside and helped him out, now sure that he didn’t feel very well.

Jessica then wrote a message to the woman who placed the order, being honest about sounding unprofessional and maybe out of line, but she had to warn the daughter about her father. Jessica noticed that there was a propane tank there, and she herself felt dizzy, so she notified the woman who made the order about a possible gas leak. The woman then said that she would get her son to come and see what was the issue.
