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.
