VIDEO: Man hands out coffee, pastries to police following NYC bombing
NEW YORK, NY (WRGT/CNN Newsource) - Random acts of kindness go a long way and after this weekend's bombings in New York's Chelsea neighborhood, a Starbucks employee decided to give back with a cup of joe.
The employee, who told officers his name was Germaine, was captured on video bringing police and other first responders coffee and pastries. In the video, as Germaine hands out the goodies, you hear him tell the officers he wishes he could "do a little more," to which the officers say they appreciate his kindness, calling it "awesome."
Twenty-nine people were hurt in Saturday night's bombing in the Chelsea neighborhood. Police took a person of interest into custody, the believe he is connected to the New York bombing and a separate bombing in New Jersey.
