In the video below, Las Vegas-based FOX5 sent their Surprise Squad to fill a stranger’s gas tank at a gas station. But they never imagined the man they chose had a story like this.
The man is David Winkelspecht, who had only $5 in his pocket for gas money when he was approached by the news team. He told the reporter that he “was trying to sell his belongings in order to make it to San Diego to see the son and grandchildren he’d never met.” Little did he know that this chance encounter with FOX5 would lead to a family reunion of epic proportions.
Watch the emotional encounter below.
This brought tears to my eyes. There’s nothing like family.
