KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) – On Saturday, drivers driving US Highway 40 were stopped by winter weather conditions.
Dave Cochran, a handyman, immediately jumped to assist the stranded motorist without a second thought. He did it by tying the vehicles, one after the other, to his old model Chevy Suburban and then pressing the gas.
"I rolled down the window and asked them if they needed help, they said," Yes, we're trying to get to the game, "Cochran said.
The Chiefs were about to face the Colts in a playoff game just down the road.
Cochran released at least five vehicles and did not ask for a dollar.
"I was scared because I'm towing in a suburb of 95 and driving a new BMW 201
Cochran continued his day and routed for the Chiefs to victory.
Then his phone started to play.
"I did not know he was a famous footballer," Cochran proclaimed.
One of the towing vehicles was the head of the Jeff Allen lymph nodes.
Allen shared the story on his Twitter account that became viral and Cochran's research took place.
"I saw that message and people called me in. I started screaming for happiness and excitement," cried Cochran.
Allen wanted to repay Cochran for his good deed.
"He gave me three free tickets to the league game on Sunday and God bless him." Cochran continued, "I did not expect all this."
This will be the first time Cochran at Arrowhead Stadium. In fact, his first game of the NFL in a stadium. He is taking his sister and boyfriend with him.
"This is my fiancé, Felica, I love her with all my heart," said Cochran.
Cochran, a 31-year-old native in Kansas City, has the same personal story. He admits to serving time behind bars and says he is paying for past mistakes.
"That's where we live … we do our best, and it's a difficult time right now the business is going down and we're trying to get the most out of it," said Cochran.
He and his boyfriend are homeless and live in the vehicle they used to pay it forward. Because sometimes those who have the minimum are willing to give their best.
"If I can help, maybe other people will do the same," said Cochran.
Cochran says he is currently in the market for a job and is willing to work for paid jobs. If you wish to contact Cochran, your number is 816-405-1712.
