This touching photo of a waiter helping a man without hands eat his meal is going viral
A waiter's kindhearted deed for a disabled customer is going viral online.
Widener was at the restaurant's bar when he turned around and noticed that one of the waiters, Alex Ruiz, was sitting across from a customer inside a booth nearby.
After closely examining the situation, Widener realized that the customer didn't have hands or prosthetics, and the 22-year-old server was helping him eat.
According to Crystal Figueroa, another waitress at the Cinco De Mayo Mexican Grill, Ruiz jumped into action when he overheard the man asking for help.
"[He] sat with him until he was finished eating," she told CBS News. "He patiently waited for him to finish his meal."
Once the patron finished his meal, Ruiz took the man's money to the cashier and brought back his change.
Then Ruiz went back to waiting tables.
"He just went about his day as if nothing happened," Figueroa said.
"He had a smile on his face the entire time," Widener told CBS News. "He didn't complain about it; it looked like he really cared."
So far, Widener's Facebook post has been shared over 2,000 times, by people who were also hit "right in the soul" by the young waiter's kindhearted deed.
As for Ruiz himself, he was completely caught off guard by all the attention his story has garnered.
"I said I would help ... and from the bottom of my heart I really wanted to help him," the Spanish-speaking Ruiz told InsideEdition.com through an interpreter.
So shines a good deed in a weary world.
