& # 39; His act of kindness was beautiful & # 39 ;: Chick-fil-A manager helps a World War II veteran, 96, replace his flat tire after the older customer & # 39; shaking and almost in tears & # 39 ; came to the counter

  • A 96-year-old veteran from World War II arrived in a Maryland Chick-fil-A in need after his car got a flat tire
  • A franchise manager suspended his duties behind the counter to go to the man's vehicle
  • An image of the Chick-fil-A manager helping the elderly veterinarian has now gone viral, with social media users strengthened by the act of kindness

A Maryland Chick-fil-A manager has proven that he is willing to go beyond his customers, and even helps an older patron in the most unlikely ways.

Daryl Howard, 29, worked Thursday at the franchise in Severn when a regular customer named Mr. Lee walked in and asked for help after his car got a flat tire.

Lee, a 96-year-old veteran from World War II, regularly visits a biscuit and a cup of coffee – but on this occasion he was in much more trouble after he barely reached the restaurant.

& # 39; He was shaking, almost in tears, & # 39; another manager named Rudy Somoza said CNN.

Howard was only too happy to help his older customer replace the tire, and told Somoza to take care of the cash register as he went out to the parking lot.

& # 39; He jumped into action without hesitation, & # 39; Somoza explained.

As Howard changed the car tire, Somoza snarled a photo and posted it online – without any idea that it would soon become viral.

The image – on which Howard lets himself be stooped at the car, as the older Lee sees through – has encouraged social media users.

& # 39; Let's emphasize the great people in society! & # 39; one wrote on Facebook, apparently sick of ruthless bad news.

& # 39; Chick-fil-A has some pretty great employees! & # 39; cooed another admirer of the image.

Somoza says that the selfless act was not strange to Howard – whom he has known for five years.

& # 39; His act of kindness was beautiful. He has always been so helpful to everyone in need and deserves recognition, & Somoza stated.

Meanwhile, Mr. Lee returned to the restaurant on Friday to get coffee – and again to thank Howard for his help.
