Fla. man gets free generator after giving away last one in store

In Florida, the people who aren't evacuating are preparing to withstand whatever Hurricane Irma has planned for them.

Customers have gone store-to-store searching for plywood, drinking water, gas cans and generators, many leaving empty-handed. They sold out within two hours.

Pam Brekke had been waiting for days to buy hands on a generator in order to keep her sick father's oxygen supply powered, and traveled almost 30 miles to a Lowe's Home Improvement that had received a surprise shipment of about 200 generators on Thursday, WFTV-TV reported.

A generous man has handed over the last generator in a U.S. store to a crying woman. Her father is ill and requires oxygen.

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

He said he and his fellow employees felt helpless since they were out of generators.

Santiago couldn't say much to Brekke because of a language barrier, but that didn't stop him from helping out someone in need.

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

As he noticed Brekke in tears, Santiago approached her and said that she could have the final generator he just picked up. "That gentleman was a great gentleman right there".

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

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

"She needed the generator".
