Some good news came for Sana Hanna, the El Cajon woman whose electric wheelchair was stolen last week.

Two local companies — Handi Habitats and The Ability Center — have joined forces to provide a new chair and custom fit it to Hanna, said Steve Mehlman, communications director for the United Domestic Workers of America. Mehlman was the one who let me know about Hanna’s situation last week.

10News aired this piece Thursday, describing Hanna’s plight. By Friday, 10News had an update. They aired this follow-up piece, announcing the two companies’ offers to help. Mehlman said Hanna’s care worker, Brooks Ashby, received nearly a dozen phone calls after the TV piece ran.

“I like happy endings,” Mehlman said.
