Would you help a boy sitting alone freezing at a bus stop? They did. (heart-warming video)

Some people did a little test in Norway. A young boy sat at a bus or tram stop, without a jacket, all alone, in the freezing weather. How would people react?

I have to admit, my heart sank, thinking this was going to be awful. And it was wonderful.

People just starting take off their jackets – two people didn’t even have sleeves on their shirts, but still gave the boy their coat.

It was really wonderful.

Judging by the end of the video, this might also be an ad for a service to help at-risk kids. In any case, it was nice to see people step up and help. It would be interesting to try something similar in big and small towns across America. Would we pass?
