A child, who has cerebral palsy, attended WrestleMania with his family in New Orleans where some crook stole the disabled boy’s camera, which contained pictures of his favorite stars.
According to the New York Daily News, Joe McCombe flew from Ireland with his parents and was ecstatic to get some pics before the show with WWE superstars John Cena and Daniel Brand.
At some point during the show though, the camera containing all the pictures of the boy with his heroes, was stolen from the back of his wheelchair by some heartless thief.
The McCombes were disgusted and felt that their vacation was completely ruined.
However, as WDSU reported, on Monday, the family’s mood changed when a local camera shop donated a new camera that holds up to 2,000 pictures and a memory card. In addition to that, the WWE gave the boy a goody bag full of gear, including autographed photos, T-shirts and a wrestling belt.
“We are so grateful to have the camera,” David McCombe said. “This belt he’s been looking for for quite a while. What the WWE and you guys have done for us will never be forgotten. We’re so grateful and will always be eternally grateful to you for that. And I just want to say thank you so much.”
