Teens often get a bad reputation. But some teens know exactly how to be Good Samaritans when the time comes. Three teens at Niagara Falls stopped their donut shop run to help a stranger push her car to her house over 5 miles away.
It all started when Aeron McQuillin, 18, Bailey Campbell, 17, and Billy Tarbett, 15 were on their way to a Tim Hortons in Fonthill, Ontario. They noticed a woman on the side of the road with smoke coming out of her car.
The teens stopped to check out the situation. It turned out to be a leak that allowed the engine coolant and oil to mix. They determined that it’d be too dangerous for the woman to drive the car home, but she couldn’t afford a tow truck.
So, at Billy’s suggestion, they pushed the car themselves. They grabbed some water and a speaker so they could “jam out” along the way.
It wasn’t easy.
Another driver, Da Morrison, stopped by to help out by driving behind them with his hazard lights on for safety. After over two and a half hours of pushing, they finally reached the woman’s home. They never even got her full name.
Dan was so amazed by these young men’s efforts that he snapped a couple of photos and posted them to Facebook, where they went viral.
“Please share the crap out of this so these young men can get the props they deserve,” he wrote. “Well done Billy, Bailey, and Aeron.”
As a result, these boys’ phones have been exploding with praise and gratitude. It’s been overwhelming, they say.
“We hope more people can learn from this situation and not be afraid to lend a helping hand to those in need,” Aeron wrote on Facebook.
Good job guys!
