The kind man was later identified. His name is Briggs VanNess. He has had a really disturbing and sad life since he was born. He was brought up by a single mother together with his 5 siblings. Many times they were out in the streets begging. He remembers how much his mother suffered to keep them alive. Even though she had cancer she worked her fingers to the bones to provide for her family. Later Briggs got into trouble and spent a few years in prison. Because of his previous lifestyle, he lost his family.
He has admitted that he regrets what he has done and his life has completely changed in the past few years. He became a successful business owner and he helps a lot of people just like he was taught to do by his mother when he was a child.
