Sometimes, a single social media post on the internet can light up your day. One such heart-warming throwback video has resurfaced leaving people feeling good about humanity. The old clip shows a scooty rider helping out an elderly man cross a busy street. When the rider saw the old man finding it difficult to walk amid the speedy vehicles, he halted his scooty in front of the traffic allowing him to cross the road. The video was shared by a person named Sander from the Netherlands who uses the Twitter account to reveal ‘positive sides.’ It was captioned as “One person can make a difference.”
The 19-second-long clip garnered more than 72,000 views and over 5000 likes. An internet user dropped an emotional comment reading, “Being a senior myself, but more importantly a human being, that brought a tear to my eye.”
Another person who loved the compassionate gesture shown by the scooty rider wrote, “Humanity is still alive. God help the person who help others.” More such comments left Twitter users cheering for the young man.
