Young man sweeps off an elderly lady with walking difficulty off her feet to help her cross road in #China’s FujianPosted by People's Daily, China on Monday, 7 March 2016
A heart-warming video posted on Facebook by People’s Daily China shows a young man helping an elderly woman cross the road. However, after realizing she would not be able to make it all the way to the opposite side before the lights turn red, the good Samaritan did not hesitate to lift her off her feet and carry her across.
The incident occurred in Fujian province in China. The video quickly won the man hearts all over the world.
“It was wonderful that a young man carried up this elderly lady across the busy intersection. She still looked like she needed more help, but he stayed with her till she was safe. We can all be helping others whenever we can,” one Facebook user commented.
“Element of human responsibility... A fragile lady, being helped today, by a young man ... helped others, cross the street, when she were young ... Because, once, she was young too!” wrote another.
It is not every day that we get to see individuals step up to help others. In a world with numerous hate crimes taking place, incidents like these are just a reminder that good people still exist, and that little efforts sure can go a long way.
