TRENTON - A homeless paraplegic's wheelchair was stolen in the middle of the night in Trenton, but after seeing the story first reported on News 12 New Jersey, a good Samaritan decided to donate a barely used Hoveround wheelchair.
Police believe that the Navy veteran's wheelchair was stolen at a round 3 a.m. Tuesday. They haven't been able to track the wheelchair down, but Kevin Smith says his faith in humanity is renewed after hearing that Collette Raciti was going to donate her wheelchair to him.
Police took Smith to the hospital after his chair was stolen and he was given a temporary one, but says that he still has to rely on others to push him.
Raciti plans on giving Smith his new Hoveround tomorrow.
