Woman Hails Cab for a Blind Chicago Pubs Fan

Witness Ryan Hamilton was on a rooftop near Wrigley Field on Saturday when he noticed a blind man trying to hail a cab for several minutes without success.

As he continued to watch, a stranger walked up and asked the man if he needed help. Hamilton said the young woman stood and helped him hail a cab.

That young woman turned out to be 26-year-old Casey Spelman, who told ABC 7 Chicago she was visiting Wrigleyville with friends when she saw the blind man waiting for a cab.

"I didn't really think much of it at the time," Spellman said. "It was after a Cubs game and it was still pretty crowded. I thought, 'Man, it's going to take him a while.'"

After a cab finally pulled up, Spelman said she asked the man if he wanted to sit in the front or back seat and he gave her a big hug.

"Awesome to see such kindness in a world that the media portrays so much hate in," Hamilton wrote on Facebook. "Share freely in hopes that her kindness spreads."
