WFTV reported that managers at an Orlando Lowe's store said they received a surprise shipment of 216 generators in advance of the storm. She drove the 30 miles to the store, just as the last generator was sold.
Her father has a medical condition and depends on oxygen. She was next in line to purchase one when she saw the final unit given to the customer ahead of her.
A generous man has handed over the last generator in a United States store to a crying woman.
Brekke told People she had heard on the news that Lowe's still had 150 generators in stock, but that they were selling fast.
Harvey, 104, and Irma, 93, get their moment in the spotlight
Irma said when their family told them they shared the name of the recent hurricanes they did not believe it. They've never been through a hurricane personally.
A stranger, Ramon Santiago, who at the time didn't know why Brekke was crying, randomly approached her with his generator, and offered it to his fellow Floridian.
Explaining her father's critical condition, Brekke said she was really upset. "It's okay. No worry for them".
"Everything is OK, everything is fine", Santiago told Brekke as the pair hugged, before she labeled him "a lovely man".
"That's a handsome man right there", she said. "That gentleman was a great gentleman right there".

George told the website that his son and daughter 'already have enough difficulty bearing the weight of their celebrity'. He might be a new dad, but George Clooney certainly knows that a lot can go wrong when raising kids.
"I'm very overwhelmed by that man", Brekke told the network.
As a follow-up, the station that covered the story initially - WFTV-TV - took it upon themselves to make sure Santiago got a generator himself.
Lowe's gave Santiago a generator to thank him for his generosity.
