Man Gives Last Generator to a Stranger Amid Prep for Hurricane Irma

Man Gives Last Generator to a Stranger Amid Prep for Hurricane Irma

Brekke's 87-year-old father-in-law, Richard Robinson, is battling congestive heart failure and needs his nightly oxygen supply to survive.

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

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.

According to WFTV-TV, she had driven 30 miles (nearly 60 km) to a Lowe's in Orlando after learning they'd received a shipment of a little over 200 generators, but on arriving they had sold out.

The video that has gone viral shows the woman finding empty isles after she came to buy oxygen for her father.

"She need the generator", Santiago, whose first language isn't English, said.

Brekke, crying, emotionally hugged Santiago, telling him he was her "angel" while he kept assuring her everything was going to be OK.

He offered Brekke his newly-purchased generator. 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.

A modest Mr Santiago sought no praise or reward for the act of kindness, and simply said it was clear Ms Brekke needed it more. "He's helping our family", Brekke said.

Number 216 was Ramon Santiago, who had the last generator.
