Man Buys Out Street Vendor's Tamales



Here's a story that will warm your heart.

A Chicago restaurant owner by the name of Robert Magiet buys dozens of tamales from street vendors so the vendors can go home early.

"We're hoping to buy out their stock of tamales so they can go home and get out of the cold for the day," Magiet told CBS News. "I saw a lady that looked like she was dressed to be in Alaska. And I just pulled over, and I asked her, I'm like, if I bought all your tamales, would you go home for the day?."

Magiet also takes the tamales that he buys to homeless shelters and tent camps set up to help those in need.
