Antonio did what we all SHOULD do.. see a problem and solve it. Congrats to him.

All of us should always have an I.D. item with us. As one ages, the family should see to it that at least a bracelet or necklace with the I.D. info on it is with us at all times.

This happens quite often, I've seen it myself and noted each time a "Hero" was helping. It's just common human decency, I think there's far more good people than bad out there, so not sure about the Hero definition, but that said, High five to you Antonio.
Good man.

Wow, seems like there are some real whackadoos in Mountain View.

Good for Antonio Murillo for not being afraid to get involved. So many others would just turn away and pretend they saw nothing.

I apologize for the many absurd and offensive comments put here by an anonymous crazy person while decent people were only trying to read and comment on a nice story. I've taken them all down, and most of the responses as well.
