Chelsea Spivey was surprised to see her brother standing on a street as she was on her way to an appointment. When she saw an elderly man in a wheelchair next to him, she had to call to see if everything was okay.
"Alex told me something was wrong with the man’s wheelchair, that it was locked up and not moving. He said he was on Google, trying to figure out how to fix it," Chelsea shared in a Facebook post.
Though Alex had called the man's family for help, he remained by his side while he waited for them. And when Chelsea came back after her appointment, he was still there. Even more moving was that Alex gave him his blanket to keep him warm while he shivered in the cold.
"I was like, 'Wow!,'" Chelsea said. "Alex had the heart to not only stop and help this man, but to do something to keep him warm while they waited, too. I left there thinking, ‘I am going to brag on my brother because not many people would do that anymore—just going up to a stranger and try to help.'"
After she shared the story on Facebook, hundreds of people liked and shared it. Alex was surprised by all the attention.
"I hope if I hadn’t stopped, somebody else would’ve," Alex said. "I’m happy I did stop, though."
Apparently, the man was actually stuck in the middle of the road when Alex first found him.
"People were swerving by him to get onto Kane Street," he said. "If everybody else thinks somebody else will stop, he could’ve been there for who knows how long and who knows what might have happened to him."
