An exhausted amateur runner looked close to collapse in the final stages of the Philadelphia Love Run Half Marathon on Sunday, but she completed the race against the odds after fellow runners helped carry her to the finish line, from where she accomplished the final steps on her own.

Two runners noticed that she was in distress and began to help her before a third decided to carry her the rest of the way.

It was a very touching act of human kindness.
