WASHINGTON (CIRCA via WJLA) — DC resident Katie Egger Makris was working out when her home's doorbell camera alerted her around 6 a.m. Thursday.
“You’re looking for package theft, or car break-ins or something that is happening on your street — you’re very rarely looking for something good," Makris told our sister station ABC7 News.
That's when Makris realized she was in such a rush, she had forgotten to zip up her bag, so her wallet had tumbled onto the snowy street.
"Typically in this city, if you lose your wallet, um, it’s gone," Makris said.
Instead, a man in a Dallas Cowboys hat had picked it up and pin-pointed Makris' address.
First, the video shows the man attempting to put her lost wallet in the mailbox. When that doesn't work, he tucks it safely under her mat.
"Not many people would have stopped," Makris said. "Many people would have just driven right over it."
Whoever the good Samaritan is, he saved Makris a lot of time and money.
"There is so much negativity that we always see these days, and especially the last couple weeks," Markis said. "I think it has been really rough on people so I was really happy to share something positive."
