Stolen Orlando PlayStation 4 replaced by concerned neighbors

George Maillis’ gaming system was stolen from his Orlando home through an open window

ORLANDO, Fla. – An Orlando boy whose gaming system was stolen through an open window in his home now has a new new system and some extra gifts.

Two weeks ago, George Maillis’ grandfather put up a sign in the family’s front yard shaming the person who “broke his grandson’s heart.”

Since then, News 6 viewers asked how they could help.

Last week, Dr. Luis Correa Luna appeared at their front door with a brand-new PlayStation 4.

Soon afterward, another viewer insisted on helping the family, and the boy's father said that man purchased his son a new virtual reality system to go with the gaming system.

"Thank you, very much. I really like it," said George. "I wish I could pay you back for anything."

“Oh, man. It’s awesome,” said Tommy Maillis, George’s father. “I couldn’t ask for anything more. It’s amazing. I feel really good for my son.”
