A Racine businessman rescued Christmas for a local family after police say a thief got into Caylie Cunningham's home through an unlocked door while she was away and took all the presents under her tree.

Included were Christmas gifts for her 7-year-old daughter and 2-year-old son. Businessman Scott Petersen says he read the story about the crime in "The Journal Times" newspaper.

Petersen says he has kids of his own and couldn't stop thinking about Cunningham and her children. He sent both of the children a gift-wrapped present and gave their mother Walmart gift cards worth $500.
