Florida Lowe's customer gives up last generator to stranger

Brekke drove 30 miles Thursday morning to a Lowe's in Orlando that got a surprise shipment of 200 generators. Her father-in-law would not be able to survive that long without his oxygen supply.

"She need the generator". She ran into Lowe's and we watched her breakdown in tears when she realized she had just missed the last generator.

With Hurricane Irma barreling toward the region, Brekke had been frantically trawling the area for a generator that she hoped would secure her father's oxygen supply should his Sanford home lose power.

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.

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

"I'm anxious about this storm", she told WFTV.

Spotify and Hulu plan to look at more ways to bundle their services for "offerings targeted at the broader market to follow". Usually, Spotify Premium for students alone costs $5 a month, so with this offer the Hulu comes in as a free add-on.

The two hugged and Santiago continued shopping, according to WPTV.

"She needs the generator", he told WFTV-TV.

"That's a lovely man right there", she said.

"I'm very overwhelmed by that man", said Brekke. "He's helping our family", Brekke said. Alvarez said she received a call from Louisiana from a woman who said if she could meet her halfway, she would bring Santiago a generator.

Lowe's gave Santiago a generator to thank him for his generosity.
