Who doesn’t feel all warm and fuzzy inside when they see a random act of kindness? Well, we’ve got a good one to share with you today!
For this bus driver in China, kindness came naturally. As he drove his passengers down his regular route, he noticed something. He was in ‘park’, and waiting for a senior citizen to step out of the bus, when he realized there was something wrong.
As seen in a video posted online on December 16, 2016, the elderly man leaned towards the double doors, but he really struggled to get through them. He was clinging onto the bars to steady himself, but couldn’t quite manage to get down the steps.
For the man, it looked as though even preparing to exit the bus was impossible. He continued trying to position himself to step off the bus, all to no avail.
The saddest part of this story is that there were at least eight others on the bus, none of whom attempted to help the elderly man exit. Not one person lifted a finger.
The only person who did something was the driver himself.
The driver glanced back to see why it was taking so long to exit, and then realized what was happening. The man needed help. The driver then unbuckled his seat belt, immediately jumped out of the front of the bus, and headed to the back end to assist the man.
He walked over to the back of the bus to help the man from outside. He held onto his arm, but quickly realized that simply supporting one side of him wasn’t going to get the job done. Instead, he wrapped his arms around the man in an adorable bear hug, and lifted the elderly man gently off the bus and safely onto the sidewalk.
Thanks to the kindness of this stranger, the senior citizen was able to get off the bus without much of a hassle. Acts like these prove that there really are everyday heroes in the world, and this driver was one of them!
