Chino & Nacho's Nacho Rescues Stranded Fans
Venezuelan duo Chino & Nacho have been called many things, but angels is probably not one of them.
Thanks to Nacho’s generosity on Sunday, an unlucky couple stranded in Panama’s airport for two days was finally able to purchase tickets to return home after missing their original flight.
“We’d spent two days in the Panama airport after we missed our flight. We were desperate and sleeping on the floor,” said Yadiris Monsalve, who was traveling with her husband. “The airline [Santa Barbara] would only say we had to pay a $782 penalty to board another flight.”
Enter Chino y Nacho, who were going to catch their own flight and ran into Monsalve as she waited outside the airport.
According to Monsalve's Facebook post -- which has garnered more than 69,000 shares to date -- Nacho (real name: Miguel Ignacio Mendoza) said, “Don’t worry, I’ll help you!”
The singer put his money where his mouth is and purchased two one-way tickets for Monsalve to return to Venezuela with her husband, no strings attached.
Monsalve has paid Nacho back by telling the story on Facebook. “The humbleness and solidarity of this great human being has to be known,” Monsalve wrote. “That’s why I’m making this magical moment public.”
