Woman summons help by typing with her toes

An Atlanta woman tied to her bed by burglars is free thanks to some fancy footwork.

Police say the woman was bound and pistol-whipped by a masked burglar who broke into her home early Tuesday morning. After he left the woman was able to use her feet to open her laptop, which was next to the bed.

She then used her toes to type out an instant message to her boyfriend reading, "Help, Call 911."

He called police, who arrived on the scene within minutes.

The victim was treated for a cut on her forehead.

Investigators are now searching for the burglar, who left driving the woman's vehicle.
