ABC News:- When 22-year-old Kayla Cooper walked out of car dealership in tears, little did she know a good Samaritan was about to help her.
Cooper, a nursing student at San Diego City College, was at Auto City in El Cajon, California, when she realized that she didn’t have enough money for a down payment to buy a used car.
Dan Laguardia, a dad of four from San Diego, was also at the dealership that day and overheard Cooper’s story. Laguardia was buying a new car for himself and planned to trade in the old one.
“I use my car to work at Ace — that’s the only reason I got the position because I had a car,” Cooper told “GMA.” I was feeling really upset because I went into [the dealership] with good intentions.”
After Cooper left the dealership, Laguardia asked the salesperson to call and ask her to come back. Cooper returned 10 minutes later and Laguardia offered her his 2005 Scion, which he intended on trading in, for nothing.
“She just couldn’t believe it,” Laguardia recalled. “She said, ‘Can I give you a hug?’ and I said, ‘Of course.'”
Cooper said she loves her new car.
“I’m still in shock about it because how could someone give it away without anything in return?” she added. “I just want to thank him. It’s been the biggest blessing of my life. I hope and pray that someday I can do the same big gesture that he did.”
