Good Samaritan Pays For Firefighters' Groceries

Firefighters have to be ready at a moments notice to respond to emergencies.
When two firefighters in Bolingbrook, Illinois dropped what they were doing to receive an ambulance call, an anonymous person jumped in with a random act of kindness.

The crew was grocery shopping for their unit when they got the call.

After handling the situation, they returned to the supermarket, only to receive a second call, which forced them to abandon their cart again while in the checkout line.

When they returned for a third time, they were told their items had been paid for.
