Heartwarming Act Of Kindness By Boiler Repair Company For Parents Of Newborn
It's hard to imagine a worse situation than your boiler breaking down as a massive snowstorm is expected to hit your town, especially a day after you brought your newborn baby home from hospital.
But that's exactly what happened to Maria and Jesse Hulscher, from Minnesota, USA after Maria gave birth to the couple's second child, Adler, on 22 February.
Naturally they called a local repairman, asking Magnuson Sheet Metal if they could send someone over fast to sort out the problem.
Luckily company manager Craig quickly dispensed one of his repairmen and the Huslcher's boiler was fixed within the hour.
A few days they receive an invoice from Magnuson, with the parents expecting a hefty bill. However, when they read the receipt, the couple couldn't believe their eyes.
A note underneath the repairs carried out read: "No charge - take care of the new baby."
Company manager Craig told Fox 9 News he did the job for free to say congrats on the birth of their son.
He admitted he "didn't know if it was a boy or a girl, if I should buy pink or blue," so thought, "let's get the child heat - how does that sound?"
