Women drops expensive wedding ring in homeless mans cup by mistake. She returns next day to find it and Homeless man hands it back. He receives $150,000 in donations after online page broadcasting the ‘miracle’ is set up by the ‘lucky’ couple.
Homeless man retrospectively claimed he felt as if he had the devil whispering on his shoulder but resisted such temptation and is keen to stress that his grandfather was a preacher, giving further foundations to make sense out of the event.
