Young woman raising her five siblings alone surprised with new car

A young woman who is raising her five younger siblings after their parents died of cancer has been gifted a new car.

A group of anonymous donors from Florida bought Samantha Rodriguez and her family a Nissan Versa after hearing about their situation.

Orange County’s Sheriff’s Office surprised the family with the gift after inviting them for a tour of their aviation unit.

In a video posted on Twitter by the force, Ms Rodriguez was asked to come up on stage, where one deputy unveiled a picture of the car.

“It’s yours,” he said.

“Thank you guys so much, you don’t know how much this means to us and it is such a big help.

“Doing everything on my own is very hard but I am so glad to have people like you guys in my life.”

Ms Rodriguez, who became the caretaker for her younger siblings after the death of her parents, was described as “an inspiration” by officers.
