LOS LUNAS, N.M. (KRQE) – Firefighters replaced an 8-year-old’s special bike on Thursday after it was stolen out of her yard in Los Lunas.
Firefighters with Random Acts of Kindness gave a bike to Faith Switzer and gave her mom a bike that attaches to hers.
Switzer was born blind. She had a special bike that would allow her to pedal and her mom to steer. But those bikes were stolen from their yard in February.
Firefighters say they when they saw Switzer’s story on the news they wanted to help.
“They immediately called us, and said ‘hey, this is a perfect random act, we’d love to help this little girl and give her a new bike,” Director of Firefighters Random Acts Steve Vaughan said.
Switzer says she plans to take her new bike for a spin as soon as she gets it home.
