A good Samaritan paid the $5,000 debt hanging over the head of a food stamp recipient featured by ABC-13.

Claudia Wolff received $200 a month in food stamps for two and a half years. She was cut off by state officials who said she made too much money and that her medical expenses weren't high enough to qualify for food assistance.

Officials with the state Health and Human Services Commission, which administers the federal food stamp program, told Wolff it was their error, not hers.

They also wanted the money back and the tab came to $5,000.

The ABC-13 viewer who paid off the debt wants to remain anonymous. In this video, Ted Oberg takes you behind the scenes off this story.
