NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (WAVY) - A Newport News man who had his motorized wheelchair stolen is rolling once again.
Victor Hill's chair was taken from outside of his Chesapeake Avenue home Sunday morning.
Tuesday, a crew from Hampton Roads Mobility donated a new motorized chair to Hill.
"We watched [Hill on the news Monday] and we felt said so bad," Paul McGee from Hampton Roads Mobility said. "We wanted to do something to help [Hill[ out."
Hill has been in a wheelchair since he suffered a stroke Christmas Eve 2009. He said he still hasn't lost faith that he will walk someday.
"I'm going to be all right," Hill said. "Right now [God's] got me."
Hill said he plans to use the new chair when he starts classes in two weeks at Thomas Nelson Community College.
"When you need help call WAVY TV 10," Hill said. "They'll get something done for you."
"Victor has got a great attitude, just loving life... and he shouldn't be locked up in his home," McGee said.
Police are still looking for the person who stole Hill's chair.
