Video of young boy helping elderly woman up stairs goes viral

MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. (WSVN) — A young Georgia boy’s random act of kindness has gone viral for all the right reasons.

Riley Duncan posted a video on Facebook that shows a young boy helping an elderly woman with a walker climb up a set of stairs.

The 8-year-old was in a car with his family when he saw the woman crossing the street. He stopped traffic and rushed over to help her, Duncan told WSB-TV.

The boy didn’t know he was being recorded as he held the woman’s arms and slowly guided her up each stair. She gave the boy a hug for his kindness.

“She told him that he’s special,” the boy’s mother told the news station.
