A Georgia man is being lauded as a good Samaritan after he was filmed helping a senior citizen cross the street.
As local affiliate NBC 11 reports, E’Ondira Weems filmed Justin Jackson getting out of his truck — which he used to block one lane of traffic — and walking alongside the senior as he used his walker to cross the street. The other drivers waited until both men were safe before proceeding.
“Y’all this man stopped traffic to help him… and my heart,” Weems wrote of the touching moment. Her video, which she posted to Facebook, has since gotten more than six million views and been shared more than 136,000 times.
“The old man was walking across the streets and people were flying by and I was like, ‘l’ve got to stop,'” Jackson told NBC 11 about his act of kindness on March 11 in Griffin, Ga.
Jackson’s now getting rave reviews on social media.
“We need more people like this man,” read one comment.
“That, dear young people, is a real man!” added a Facebook poster.
“Is he married??? Asking for a friend,” joked another fan.
