The 15-year-old kid who saw an elderly woman in need and offered to help deserves all the accolades, as does his younger sister. While waiting for the school bus, Dontarius Caldwell and his sister Diamond were playing games on their phones when Diamond spotted a woman fumbling to activate the crosswalk button.
His sister informed her elder brother that she believed the woman to be blind and advised him to go assist her. He was unaware that his acts would be recorded on camera and broadcast across the country.
When Diamond replied, “I told Dontarius that I thought she was blind, you should get up and go help her, he got up and went to help her cross the street twice while I was waiting for the bus.
The woman responded “yes” when the Cincinnati, Ohio, freshman asked if she needed help and took his hand in response.
While his sister stayed to wait for the school bus, he led the old, blind woman across the street safely.
The kind-hearted adolescents told the local media that they had just been raised to act morally and that they had not given their deeds a second thought.
“I was only attempting to assist. Dontarius admitted to NBC’s WLWT5 News station, “I truly didn’t anticipate I would be on camera.
“I was simply lending a helping hand to the elderly. Helping hand is the crucial phrase. Everyone needs to lend a hand, he said.
Dontarius was photographed assisting the woman, and the picture quickly went viral on social media. Thousands of people have watched it in just 24 hours and have applauded the boy for his deeds.
Dontarius remarked, “If you are kind, what happens to them will happen to you.”
As an appreciation for his generosity, Dontarius received a key to the institution.
