Floy Chestnut works at Southwest Airlines at Will Rogers World Airport. It seemed she would have another regular day at work, but then News 9 showed up with a special gift.

As Floy worked at the ticket counter, News 9's Bobbie Miller took over the intercom system and made an announcement:

"Attention flyers. There is open seating available in the "red" Dodge Caliber for Floy Chestnut of Southwest Airlines. Floy, if we could get your boarding pass for the Dodge Caliber you now see in the lobby. Again, Floy Chestnut we need your boarding pass for your new car now waiting for you."

At first, Floy thought it was a joke.

"I feel like I'm being punked!"

But it was no joke. When she stepped outside, she saw her family and her new Dodge Caliber. Thanks to Norman Chrysler Jeep Dodge, she'll be able to drive it for free for the next year.

Floy says it will be a big help because she and her family are still trying to pay off some medical bills they incurred when Floy's husband had a heart attack a few years ago.
