Video of Good Samaritan helping elderly gentleman on a walker across a busy street goes viral

An act of kindness captured on video by motorist Eondria Weems in Griffin, Georgia has gone viral on social media. It shows a Good Samaritan as he got out of his truck and stopped traffic to escort an elderly gentleman on a walker across a busy street.

ABC News shared the viral video on their Facebook page and someone who works with this kind man commented

“This guy works for my company!…Thanks for sharing JJ’S good deed bec “This guy works for my company!…Thanks for sharing JJ’S good deed because he is an OUTSTANDING Guy and worker.”

ABC News shared the video, which has been viewed 1.9 million times. (Facebook video may be slow to load)

Many women have commented on the video asking if this compassionate man is married. One commenter summed it up perfectly after volunteering to marry JJ saying  “Not a lot of gentleman left out there.”

It’s uncertain why the elderly man chose not to cross at the crosswalk. Perhaps he didn’t know where the crosswalk was located or he simply wasn’t able to walk that far.

Thanks go out to this kind man for taking time out of his commute to help a senior in need.
