Woman set on fire receives help from Good Samaritan
BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. (WSVN) -- An anonymous Good Samaritan offered a helping hand to a South Florida woman who was set on fire at a gas station.
A woman Naomie Breton has never met offered to pay the towing bills she accumulated while recovering in the hospital. "You're going to make me cry!" said Breton to the woman.
Breton suffered burns on 13 percent of her body after her ex-boyfriend Roosevelt Mondesir allegedly set her on fire at a Boynton Beach gas station last Monday. "I just called. and I had to hang up," Breton said to a 911 dispatcher immediately after the incident. "He set me on fire!"
After Breton was rushed to the hospital for treatment and police arrested Mondesir, both of their vehicles were towed.
Zuccala Towing sent the bill to the name on the registration: Naomie Breton. "So when I found out I owed $340, that's coming out of my pocket," she said. "Why? For being set on fire?"
The tow company said there was nothing they could do, she'd be on the hook for more than $500 in charges to tow both cars.
The Good Samaritan, who wished to remain anonymous, restored Breton's faith as she recovers from emotional and physical scars. "Perfect stranger," said Breton. "She didn't know me."
Breton won't be able to pick up her car until Monday because her keys are still in the police evidence room.
Mondesir remains behind bars facing an attempted first degree murder charge.
