PERRYSBURG, Ohio — Folks in Perrysburg came together to help an elderly man who was scammed by a man who was paid to weed his yard, but didn't get the job done.

Dozens of neighbors heard about what happened to 80-year-old Russell Brogan, and jumped in to help.

Brogan said he just wanted to get his yard in shape for his upcoming birthday party this weekend.

He put a post on Facebook warning people not to pay someone before the job is done and before he knew it, dozens of people were working for hours in the rain.

"All these wonderful people from Perrysburg come together and amazed me, amazed my wife. Made my wife cry and she don't cry easy. But it was an amazing birthday present," says Brogan.

The helpers even brought pizza, cake and wine to celebrate Brogan's birthday.
