NBA star, Shaquille O’Neal, bought a 12-year-old boy, Isaiah Payton, a house because his old home lacked wheelchair access – The boy had an accident where a stray ball hit his chest, a situation which rendered him totally paralysed – After his recovery, he could not return to his parents’ one-bedroom apartment because it would not contain his wheelchair Everybody needs some act of human kindness to enjoy life in full. NBA star, Shaquille O’Neal, did that to a boy and his family when he bought them a new house. The 12-year-old boy, Isaiah Payton, was hit by a stray bullet in his chest in Atlanta, Georgia which paralysed him from his waist. The NBA star was saddened by the situation the boy was thrown into and had to step into the case and help in the way that he could.
However, after Isaiah recovered from the accident, he could not return to his parent’s one-bedroom apartment as it does not have wheelchair access.
Without the new big home, the boy would not be able to use his wheelchair when he leaves the hospital because his old house is small. It was at this particular time that O’Neal came into the situation and got a new home for them, even as he promised to do more to make the family comfortable. (Legit.ng)
