Dontarius Caldwell, a 15-year-old boy, was waiting for the school bus with his young sister Diamond when they noticed a woman having difficulty to press the button at a crosswalk.
Diamond, guessing that the woman is blind, asked her brother to go to help her. But the siblings had no idea that this small act of kindness will be caught on camera and shared everywhere.
“I told Dontarius that I think she blind, you should get up and go help her, and he got up and went to go help her cross the street two times while I waited for the bus to come,” Diamond said.
The freshman from Cincinnati, Ohio, approached the woman and asked her if she needed help to which she replied “yes” and took his hand for help.
He then guided the elderly, blind lady across the street safely, while his sister continued to wait for the school bus.
The big-hearted teenagers didn’t think anything of their actions telling local media they were just raised to do the right thing.
“I was just trying to help. I really didn’t think I would be on camera,” Dontarius told NBC’s WLWT5 News station.
“I was just helping the elderly, giving a helping hand. The key word is helping hand. Everybody gotta get a helping hand,” he said.
Dontarius was caught on camera helping the woman and the image was shared on social media. In just 24 hours thousands have seen it and praised the teen for his actions.
“If you be kind, what happens (to them) happens to you,” Dontarius said.
Dontarius was given a key to the school as a reward for his kindness.
It’s nice to know that in the world we live in kindness is still celebrated and rewarded.
