A video showing three young Black men assisting a 100-year-old man who was struggling to get his wife into a car has gone viral online.
Kanesha Carnegie, a cop from the Levy County Sherriff’s Office in Bronson, Florida, captured the heartwarming moment last week and posted it on Facebook.
Carnegie was at a gas station when she saw Rose Griest, 89, struggling to get into the vehicle. Griest and her husband, David, stopped at the gas station on their way to a doctor’s appointment and barely could stand as she made her way back to the car, according to the Good News Network.
The officer was going to help
“Thank you so
“It was a beautiful thing to see,” Carnegie told Yahoo! News. “I know these men from the neighborhood, and I wanted them to have that moment to show who they really are.”
