Two teens grabbed a brand new, beautiful BMX bike worth $400, leaving its owner, a 13-year-old boy, crying on the sidewalk. But when a passer-by stopped to see if he was okay, the boy’s luck began to change.
The man followed the thieves and called police, but the bike was not recovered.
The concerned man also told his employer about the incident. After hearing his story, All-Lifts Inc., an industrial rigging company in Albany, sent him out with money to purchase a new bike.
The new bike was delivered to the boy Tuesday afternoon.
