Legit.ng previously reported that a woman in the United States warmed people's hearts by showing compassion to a homeless woman begging diners for their leftovers at a restaurant in California.
The woman identified as Carmen Mendez said the lady begging approached people at Raising Canes to give her their leftovers instead of thrashing them, but they ignored her and decided to throw the leftovers away.
The young woman, who was at the restaurant with her boyfriend, was heartbroken that people showed no compassion to the elderly woman.
