FAIRFIELD, AL (WBRC) - FOX6 first reported about a 3-year- old Fairfield boy who had his wheelchair stolen Thursday.

This was going to create a major hardship for Jakarius and his mother Crystal Williams. Randi Hubbard at St. Vincent's Orthopedics saw the story and had colleauges help.

So St. Vincent's Orthopedics gave the Williams family the pediatric wheelchair.

"When Randy told us about us about it. We were very moved. We do have extra equipment. We don't use these pediatric wheelchairs very often,"  Dr. James Worthen said.

Williams described, "It's a blessing. It's going to help out just fine to get him around. I want to thank you so much."

The search still continues for whoever stole the wheelchair. Many in the Williams neighborhood were shocked by the theft, but touched so many reached out to help.

"I'm so glad. God is good. He is awesome what he can do. I'm so glad the little boy got his wheelchair back and can mobilize like he needs to move." Judith Lewis said.

Williams said, "I'm just happy. Amazing. I called and reported my baby's wheelchair was missing. I didn't think this was happening.
