INDIANAPOLIS - An Indiana man with special needs is able to get around once again thanks to the kindness of a complete stranger.
Adam Marcom was helping two men Tuesday afternoon when they started to beat him and ended up destroying his scooter.
On Wednesday, the owner of Indy Trading Post, Brian Ludlow, heard the story and decided he had to do something.
Even though the two men had never met, Ludlow went out and bought Marcom a brand-new scooter.
Marcom’s mother said the gift changed her son's life.
"He is a young man with special needs. He can't get a driver's license, so this is his only means of transportation," Judy Champa said.
Ludlow delivered the scooter to Marcom on Thursday. He said Marcom simply deserved better than how he was treated.
