McDonald’s worker assists physically challenged man, hailed as hero


A Chicago (Illinois, USA) McDonald’s staff identified as Kenny has been hailed a hero for assisting a physically challenged man with his meal. The image went viral on internet (facebook), after being posted by Destiny Carreno on Thursday, September 24, 2015, and it has more than 340,000 shares.

Kenny was seen helping a man bounded on wheelchair, to cut his food.

According Destiny Carreno, “Today I made a quick stop at McDonald after work. As I waited in line to order, an elderly handicapped gentleman wheeled himself over to the cashier in front of me.

“The man politely tried to ask the cashier something and it took him a few tries before either of us could understand he was saying “Help me please”. Neither of us knew what help he needed, and the cashier suggested a few things before he figured out the gentleman needed help cutting and eating his meal.

“To be honest, I thought the cashier wasn’t going to help, especially during rush hour in downtown Chicago, but to my shock, he shut down his register and disappeared from view….

“Not to get away from helping him, but to wash his hands and put gloves on! I had to stick around and see how this would play out, especially since it hit me so close to home with my own uncle.

“The cashier came out from the kitchen, sat down, and began cutting the man’s meal and helped him eat.”

She continued: “At that point, the tears started to gather in my eyes. My heart was so appreciative for what he did. I couldn’t contain my emotions in the crowded restaurant.

“This employee, who put everything on hold for this man, went above and beyond his responsibilities to help this handicapped customer out. That was the kindest and most humble thing I had ever seen.”
