STANVILLE, Ky. (WYMT) - A man credited with helping save three women who were held in captivity for nearly one decade was in Eastern Kentucky Friday.

Charles Ramsey gained sudden fame when an interview he gave went viral after Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight were found in Cleveland earlier this month.

Ramsey made the trip to Floyd County to the Eric C. Conn Law Firm.

People lined up throughout the afternoon to meet him, shaking hands and snapping pictures.

Much to Ramsey's surprise, Conn had a bust made of his head which Ramsey wasted no time getting to know.

But Ramsey said his sudden fame came as a surprise.

He says he was just doing what felt natural when he helped save the three women.

But he says even though his life has certainly changed, he will always be the same Charles Ramsey.

More than one dozen restaurants in Ohio have said they will give Ramsey free burgers for life.
