DS theft leads to happy ending
Michael didn't even have his family to turn to after the theft, as he was traveling alone to visit his great-grandmother in Michigan. When he realized that his beloved handheld was taken, he cried, as most little boys would. Here's where the story takes a better turn, though: a stranger named Fiona Lohrisch saw the boy crying, and being a grandmother of five herself, took pity on him. She then resolved to buy Michael a new DS! How sweet!
Tipster Tim sent this story to us describing it as "uplifting," but we're more in the cynical camp of "it's so depressing that this even happened in the first place." Don't let our sour exteriors keep your spirits down or ruin your heartfelt "awwws," though. It really is a happy ending.
