Woman unknowingly saved a homeless man's life when she bought him coffee and a bagel

A young woman named Casey Fischer saved a man’s life by just spending some time talking with him.


The woman received a crumpled note from the man she met at Dunkin’ Donuts. Fischer shared her experience on Facebook on May 21, 2015.

She was enjoying her food when she saw a homeless man on the side of the road picking up some change. He then entered the restaurant, counting his money.

Though the man did not seem to be willing to talk to anyone, she began striking a conversation. Fischer also noticed that he had only $1 in his hand.

Without thinking, she bought him a bagel and coffee out of her own pocket. She asked the man to sit down with her.

The man, Chris, told her his story. He told her that people were usually cruel to him because he was homeless.


He shared some secrets including how drugs had “turned him into the person he hated.” He had lost his mother to cancer but just wanted to be a person she could be proud of.

The two chatted for over an hour. It was then that Fischer realized she had to get back to class. Chris told her to wait and scribbled something on a crumpled-up receipt.

He handed over the note to her, apologizing for his “shaky handwriting.” He smiled and walked out of the restaurant.


The young woman said that the ‘lovely man’ was one of the most honest and sincere people she has ever met.

Fischer was taken aback after reading the note. It took her some time to realize that the last hour was much greater than a friendly conversation, it was much more than just a bagel and coffee.

Chris wrote, ‘I wanted to kill myself today. Because of u I now do not. Thank u, beautiful person.’

Without realizing, Fischer had touched the life of a complete stranger and ended up saving his life.
