A 103-year-old woman was shown compassion by deputies and movers, when they decided against following through with a court-ordered eviction.

After Vinia Hall lost a legal battle with Deutsche Bank earlier this year, movers were sent to evict the century old mother, and her 83-year-old daughter Vita Lee. But the elderly mother and daughter were spared when they arrived to the house:


The Journal-Constitution reported that Mayor Kasim Reed of Atlanta, Derrick Boazman, a former city council member, and Vincent Ford, a state senator, all intervened to keep Hall in her longtime home.

“[Chase] should write this off at a loss,” Boazman said.

“I saw the sheriffs, who came to put them out, take off and leave. I gave all glory to God,” community activist Michael Langford said.
