Woman shares how she stopped an alleged intruder from breaking into her hotel room

TikTok user Josie Bowers (@josiebowers10) posted a duet with a video from another user who warned their followers to look out for a wire contraption with a hook on it. “If you ever see this come under the door, run IMMEDIATELY,” the text in the original video said. Bowers said she’d seen the device before. Her encounter with it happened when she was 15 and on vacation with her family. She claimed that while the rest of her family was at the beach, she returned to the hotel to take a shower. “I heard these noises, I went to go see what it was and it was this contraption. I was just standing there in my towel”. She added that someone eventually opened the door slightly and she slammed it shut. Whoever was on the other side of the door allegedly said they were “services”. When she opened the door to see if there were really workers present, Bowers claimed they were dressed in jeans and a T-shirt. “I yelled ‘hey dad, there’s someone here to fix the door.’ As soon as they thought that I wasn’t alone, and potentially my dad was there, they ran, they were gone”. Commenters were thoroughly spooked. “I’m rarely ever scared but this got me,” one said
