Random Acts of Kindness Day: Eight-year-old boy stops traffic to help elderly woman climb stairs

On Random Acts of Kindness Day, here's a throw back to one of the more heart warming videos that went viral in the last few years.

The footage of a young boy helping an elderly woman up a set of steps was shared across the world back in 2018.

The boy, named by WSB-TV in Atlanta as 8-year-old Maurice Adams Jr., can be seen giving the woman a helping hand as she struggles to make it to the top with her frame.

When they reach the top, Maurice and the stranger embrace in a hug and exchange some words, before Maurice happily heads back down and into a car.

Onlooker Riley Duncan, who filmed the endearing encounter, told WSB-TV that the boy stopped traffic to run out and help the woman.

Maurice was reportedly in the car with his mother and sister when Maurice first saw the elderly woman crossing the road alone.
