LEHIGH ACRES, Fla. - A WINK News viewer has come to the rescue of an 89-year-old Lehigh woman.

Last week, Marie Bradley paid a guy $500 to cut down a tree in her backyard. The guy cut the tree down but left a large stump. He didn't return.

Marie was upset, but luckily WINK News viewer Dave Nichols saw the story. He volunteered to cut down the stump for free. "I don't like to see older people taken advantage of," he said.

Dave owns Dave and Judi's Tree Service and within a half-hour, the stump was gone, and Marie was touched.

"There are some decent people in the world, I found that out," she says.
