After waiting in line for hours, man offers last generator to stranger

An angel’ Ahead of Hurricane Irma man gives store’s last generator to woman in need

The generators sold out within two hours, managers at the Lowe's store told the ABC affiliate.

Pam Brekke traveled 30 miles to a Lowe's store near Orlando on Thursday, hoping to purchase one of 216 generators the store had received in a surprise shipment.

Her father has a medical condition and depends on oxygen.

But after waiting patiently in line, she realised the man in front of her was going to get the final generator. She ran into Lowe's and we watched her breakdown in tears when she realized she had just missed the last generator.

She told WESH in Orlando that her father is on oxygen and her wife is not well, either.

But then, she was graced with a random act of kindness and humanity amid the chaos: The customer ahead of her, Ramon Santiago, approached and insisted she take his generator - the last one in stock - without knowing why she was crying.

Completely overwhelmed with the hopelessness of the situation, Ms Brekke burst into tears. "It's okay. No worry for them".

"She need the generator", said Santiago, whose first language isn't English. She said she had just finished her shift doing the morning news and was queuing with a pile of batteries in preparation for the storm.

It's a gesture Brekke won't soon forget as neighbor help each other at a crucial time.
