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

Brekke's elderly father is on oxygen and she was anxious Irma would knock power out at her home, leaving the family without a way to help her dad.

Natural disasters often cause death and destruction, but the looming threat of Hurricane Irma has brought out the best in some Central Florida residents.

Then she thought she'd caught a lucky break: a Lowe's store 30 miles away in Orlando had gotten a surprise shipment of generators.

Pam Brekke, of Sanford, Fla., had spent days hunting for a generator.

"She need the generator", Santiago, who isn't a native English speaker, told WFTV.

But after waiting patiently in line, she realised the man in front of her was going to get the final generator.

Ms Brekke dashed into the store only to discover she'd just missed out.

Former New York Giants kicker Josh Brown suspended another six games
The NFL announced they have suspended Brown an additional six games after they found new evidence in his domestic violence case. Elliott appealed the league's decision, and arbitrator Harold Henderson ruled Tuesday that the suspension will be upheld.

"She need the generator. No worry for them".

"That's a attractive man right there", Brekke says in the video, as the man wipes away tears.

WFTV reporter Nancy Alvarez shared heartwarming footage on Facebook Thursday of Brekke effusively thanking Santiago.

"She needs the generator", Santiago told WFTV-TV of his decision to offer the woman the last power supply.

"I'm very overwhelmed by that man. God will bless that man".

Brekke said it's encouraging to see people help one another during such a stressful time.
