      Garbage truck driver's surprise is touching move to boy with autism

      5-year-old Daniel has autism. One of the best parts of his week is watching the garbage truck come by. So when it stopped in front of his house, his week was about to get better.

      The weekly ritual is common to his parents in Southern California. They used a phone to record his most recent visit from the trash man.

      It starts fairly common. The trash man pulls up, empties the trash, but then calls out and says he has a gift.

      Manuel Sanchez climbs out of his truck and hands the boy a toy garbage truck.

      "One man, one moment, touching the life of an autistic child. Our hearts are overflowing."
