McDonald's employee helps disabled customer eat his food

A PHOTO of a McDonald's employee in the US helping an elderly disabled customer cut up and eat his food has gone viral.

The picture taken by Destiny Carreno has been shared over 380,000 times since she posted it on Facebook.

In her post, Ms Carreno said she was waiting in line at the fast food outlet in Chicago when "an elderly handicapped gentleman" wheeled himself over to the cashier in front of her.

"The man politely tried to ask the cashier something and it took him a few tries before either of us could understand he was saying 'Help me please'.

"The cashier came out from the kitchen, sat down, and began cutting the man's meal and helped him eat."

Ms Carreno then took a photo of the McDonald's employee, known only as Kenny, and posted it on Facebook saying: "Seeing this today brought tears to my eyes! Compassion has NOT gone out of style.

"This employee, who put everything on hold for this man, went above and beyond his responsibilities to help this handicapped customer out. That was the kindest and most humble thing I had ever seen."

Seeing this today brought tears to my eyes! Compassion has NOT gone out of style.Today I made a quick stop at McDonald...
