Wenyen Gabriel Once Gave An Elderly Uber Driver $2500 For Returning His Lost Wallet

Wenyen Gabriel Once Gave An Elderly Uber Driver $2500 For Returning His Lost Wallet

Wenyen Gabriel is a great guy and this wholesome story proves it.

Gabriel apparently left an elderly Uber driver a $2500 tip so that he wouldn't put his health at risk by driving too much during the coronavirus pandemic.

His reasons for doing so? Because the Uber driver returned his lost wallet to his home.

During Portland's Game 2 clash with the Los Angeles Lakers, the Trail Blazers power forward was substituted out of the game late in the fourth quarter.

As the 6 foot 9 inch 23-year-old left the court, the ESPN commentator shared the recent story involving Gabriel.

"Gabriel was getting an Uber in Portland," the commentator said.

"The driver was an older gentleman and they just hit it off. Gabriel said he was having a great conversation but when he got out of the car he realised he'd left his wallet in the man's car.

"He tried to contact him but couldn't get ahold of him. The older gentleman, the Uber driver, then showed up at his house with his wallet. Wenyen was very touched by this and when the COVID-19 pandemic began he thought about this gentleman and he was worried about him because he was at risk with his age and had some health issues.

"He was thinking that the man shouldn't be driving a car at his age with the pandemic, so he deposited $2500 in the gentleman's Uber account so he wouldn't have to drive during the pandemic. He didn't tell anyone about it, but the driver was so overcome with the kindness of Wenyen Gabriel that he contacted one of the papers and said 'people need to know what this young man did for me, I'll be a fan for life'."
