McDonald's employee praised for act of kindness after photo goes viral

(FOX News) - A Chicago McDonald’s employee who closed the register during the dinner rush to help a disabled customer is being praised by the fast food chain.

A photo showing the employee, known only as Kenny, cutting food of an elderly disabled man was secretly taken by Facebook user Destiny Carrero. The image, which was first posted to Facebook last week, has been shared more than 250,000 times on Facebook and received more than 700,000 views on other social media platforms.

Carrero wrote that she was in line waiting to order when the man, who was in a wheelchair, took his food, before asking: “Please help me.”

“Neither of us knew what help he needed, and the cashier suggested a few things before he figured out the gentleman needed help cutting and eating his meal,” the Facebook post read. “To be honest, I thought the cashier wasn't going to help, especially during rush hour in downtown Chicago, but to my shock, he shut down his register and disappeared from view.”
