Concerned driver stops traffic to help a kid get up a snowbank on a busy street
He tried getting the school bus driver's attention but to no avail.
Snow doesn't stop school busses from running in northern states. Outside of a blizzard, the snow plows run early in the morning just in time for busses to collect little kids to take them to school. But while the roads may be cleared up and sidewalks shoveled, the discarded snow collects on the side of the road which creates an obstacle for people who need to get from the road to the sidewalk.
In a video uploaded to social media by Memezar, a school bus drops of two little boys right in front of a snowbank likely caused by snow plows. The older boy climbed up the snow bank just fine but the younger one was struggling and help from the other child just wasn't doing the trick.
It didn't seem as if the bus driver could see the child struggling or maybe assumed he would make it up the tiny snow mountain because the driver drove away. Taking away the only thing protecting the boy from traffic–the flashing stop sign.
A driver on the other side of the street could see the boy struggling and attempted to alert the bus driver but was unsuccessful. The bus drove away leaving the small child vulnerable as cars begin to speed by. But the quick-thinking concerned driver, blew his horn and put his own life at risk by using his own car to block traffic.
In no time the man scooped the boy up and placed him on the sidewalk next to the other child. Thanks to that kind stranger, the child left the situation uninjured and commenters can't get enough of the driver's actions.
"Thank you sir for taking time to help this boy. Bless you," one person says.
"I would be livid about the bus leaving my child on a road that busy without waiting until they are safely off the road. That man is wonderful and caring. Thank you," another commenter writes.
"Thank you for helping this Child. You have a kind heart," someone says.
The entire video is a roller coaster of emotions from watching the boy struggle to seeing him helped to safety. You can watch the whole thing below.
