Charles Ramsey, the hero neighbor who helped save three young women and a child who had been missing for more than nine years, will soon be hearing from fast-food giant McDonald's.

The Cleveland resident has become an Internet sensation after he gave a TV interview about what happened. He told a WEWS/NewsChannel5 reporter that he'd been eating a McDonald's meal when he noticed a young woman behind the door to his neighbor's house calling out for help. Ramsey helped free her. She turned out to be Amanda Berry, 27, who had disappeared a decade ago.

Police then came and rescued Michelle Knight, 32, and Gina DeJesus, about 23, from the home.

"I barbecue with this dude," Ramsey said. "We eat ribs and what not, listen to salsa music, you see where I'm coming from? Not a clue that that girl was in that house, or anybody else was in there against their will."

On Tuesday, McDonald's tweeted: "We salute the courage of Ohio kidnap victims & respect their privacy. Way to go Charles Ramsey- we'll be in touch."

So what could that mean? Post a comment below with your guesses and ideas of what McDonald's might do to reward Ramsey.
