(Scroll down for video) An employee at IHOP, became an Internet sensation after someone took a photo of him feeding a disabled person.

Keisha Dotson, who saw 43-year-old Joe Thomas feeding the disabled woman, uploaded the photo to the Internet, where it went viral.

Coworkers at the IHOP in Springfield, Illinois, said that Thomas feeds the woman every single week. She comes to the restaurant with her husband, and Thomas feeds her so that the woman’s husband can eat his food while it is still warm.

Thomas was feeding the woman and he used a napkin to clean her face when she was done eating.

Dotson uploaded the photo to social media, and she wrote a message to IHOP saying: “Today, I witnessed a very touching moment involving one of your servers.

“A man and disabled woman were dining, and your server sat down with them and proceeded to help feed the disabled woman while her companion enjoyed his food. My faith in humanity has been restored a little today.”

Thomas said that since the photo was posted, he was been offered the opportunity to become a nurse.
