Nancy Kennedy of Edgewater, Fla., doesn’t know exactly who put the impassable cement block in her driveway over the weekend — although she has an idea — but she sure is grateful to the stranger who saved her thousands of dollars by going out of his way to remove it.
WKMG-TV reported Marvin Corbin saying he heard of Kennedy’s plight on the local news station and drove an hour and a half from his home to use equipment he had to move the 7,000-pound barrier for her.
“We’re glad to do things like this,” Corbin with Florida Baptist Disaster Relief told WKMG. “That’s why the Lord has provided us with the equipment to come in and help people that aren’t able to do it themselves.”
It could have cost Kennedy up to $2,000 to have the cement barrier professionally removed if Corbin did not step in.
“To me, it just looked like somebody being antagonistic,” Corbin said in WKMG’s report.
When Corbin showed up to Kennedy’s house to remove it Wednesday, she said “I don’t have enough words to say how grateful I am to you.”
Although police are investigating who dropped the block in her driveway, Kennedy told WKMG she thinks a neighbor with whom she has been feuding might have done it. WKMG contacted that neighbor who denied it and said they don’t know who did it.
Whoever left the block there, Kennedy said they “obviously weren’t Christian people because you don’t hurt people like this.”
The homeowner added that she said she is now installing surveillance cameras.
