Good stuff today in the Southbay.
People finding hidden cash like our very own Layna Thom.
$100 she found at the Greyhound Bus Station just a block away from KBAY.
And the ever growing support for a San Jose family in need thanks to Police Officer Huan Nguyen.
This was today’s “Isn’t it Nice Story at 6:40…but it is so worth repeating.
It was May 6th when 37 year old bus driver Phuoc Lam was shot and killed in a road rage incident right outside his mobile home park…The gunman has yet to be caught.
Phuoc was a hard working man with not a penny in a savings account. He worked 7 days a week to support his wife and 2 little boys, one who’s autistic. So when he was killed, there was no money coming in…not for food…rent…clothes …
Officer Huan Nguyen was one of the investigating cops. Like the Lams he is a Vietnamese immigrant and he has two kids but unlike the Lams he was in a position to help. He started texting his friends and then his fellow officers asking for donations. He hoped to raise a few thousand dollars.
That was 3 weeks ago…Officer Nguyen has now raised $100,000 for the Lams….most if not all of it from complete strangers.
If you’re in the giving mood and able…here’s the website….YouCaring.com/SanJose15Homocide. Yes, sadly Lam is the 15th homicide victim of the year in San Jose. Luckily his widow has a forever friend in Huan Nguyen!!
And isn’t that nice!!!!
