A man in black walks over to help an elderly man with his yard.

When an elderly man was having trouble caring for his lawn, a stranger performed the most astonishing act of kindness for him! A driver happened to be passing through the neighborhood when he saw the other man struggling with a large pair of clippers. He immediately stopped his car and hopped out to help. Thankfully, he happened to have the very tool for the job on hand: an electric trimmer!

This man’s wife captured his sweet act of kindness for the elderly gentleman on camera. She also shared it on social media, where it received over three million views! In the clip, the driver didn’t hesitate to stop the moment he saw someone in need. He was out there in a flash, brandishing the powerful lawn care equipment. In no time at all, he had the front yard looking neat and tidy!

“Little act of kindness,” wrote the man’s wife in her caption. “Husband stopping car to help.”

Just as quickly as he arrived on the scene, the thoughtful man returned to his car as soon as he’d finished the job. Thanks to this act of kindness, the elderly man was saved a lot of strenuous physical labor.

What a kind thing to do for a total stranger!

Commenters were truly impressed by the sweet guy’s response to seeing someone else struggling.

“The old man backing up in amazement at someone helping him has me in tears,” wrote one user. “This is where kids need to learn to help out.”

Another added, “Just gave that man 2+ hours of his life back.”

A third said, “If everyone just did one act of kindness a day, imagine how that would affect all of us.”
