On September 20th boxing trainer Manuel Robles lived what you would see in a motion picture. While doing business in Tijuana, Robles was being held hostage at a hotel. He was able to access Facebook while being held captive and seek help.
“please help held hostage real inn tijuana blvd agua caliente #11451 col hipodromo”
The above was the exact post that Robles posted which sent friends and family into a frenzy wondering whether it was true or if it was someone playing around with his account. After a short amount of time it was confirmed that the message was not a prank and that Robles was in serious danger.
After some hours passed a post from Robles showed up on Facebook confirming that he was indeed safe and on his way home from the terrifying experience.
” Thank God the nightmare is over, I’m ok now thanks to the feds and my good friends here in TJ. God is good.”
