Bill Clinton was moved to tears by an Albanian waiter at a New York City restaurant who credited the former president with saving his life.
Bill and Hillary Clinton were dining at The Seafire Grill on Friday night when one of the waiters dropped to his knees in front of them and said: ‘Sir, I want to thank you. If not for you, I wouldn’t be alive today.’
The waiter told them his harrowing tales of his time in war-torn Kosovo.
He fled Kosovo at 16, after his dad and other family members were tortured by the Serbs during the war, TMZ reports.
Now 32, the waiter, who came to the US in 1999, credits Bill with saving his life.
As president, Bill launched a NATO bombing campaign in 1999 to force Serbian troops out, which paved the way for Kosovo’s independence nine years later.
