The moment two runners stopped during a race to help a woman who was about to collapse has been caught on camera.

The woman was approaching the end of Philadelphia's half marathon when she seemed to be close to fainting.

While most runners passed her by without a second thought, two men stopped to help her on her way to the end mark.

When the runner was unable to hold up her body weight, one of the good samaritans picked her up and jogged to the end line with her, earning both of them their well-deserved medals.

All three received massive cheers from the crowd as they edged closer to the race's end.
