Oh, thank goodness.
Baseball player Wilson Ramos, who plays for the Washington Nationals, was found and rescued in Venezuela Friday after experiencing what sources say was "heavy gunfire."
Ramos was abducted by armed men in his home country on Wednesday. When talking about the harrowing ordeal, he knew he wasn't completely safe:
"The truth is, at the moment they came to get me I was very nervous. There were many gunshots. … Thanks to God, those guys did a tremendous job. I'm super grateful to them."
Kidnappers have been known to target wealthy athletes in Venezuela to get a hefty ransom in return.
We are just so thankful that he has been found and is alive and well. What a scary ordeal. We all are so relieved.

A woman who had an accident and was left in a wheel chair and on pain killers has had her dog kidnapped.
The kidnappers demanded her pain killers (which she needs to function day-to-day) and $1000.
If she doesn't pay up, they're threatening to torture then kill her dog.
Police have been unable to find the kidnappers so far.
Check out the above video to hear this heart-wrenching story.
We hope she remains strong and we wish her the best of luck in having her doggy returned to her.
