Man Blocks Traffic As Motorists Observe In Disbelief, His Actions Have Gone Viral


A Virginia woman snapped a photo of a random act of kindness that is now going viral online.

WSET reports that Amanda Logan was on her way home from work when she spotted a man in the middle of the road stopping traffic. That was when she noticed that the man was helping an elderly woman cross the road.

The woman had reportedly been trying to cross on her own, but cars were swerving around her as traffic continued before she could make it to the crosswalk. So the man, Brandon Hairston, ran into the middle of the street to stop traffic in order to allow her to cross.

“It was so nice to see this young man doing an act of kindness,” Logan said. “So I thought it would just be nice to you know make it known. I didn’t know who he was and I just decided at the last moment to snap a picture.”

Logan posted the picture she snapped to her Facebook account with a caption:

“Facebook I want to share this young man’s kind act. I don’t know who he is and maybe someone here on Facebook knows. Today this elderly lady was trying to cross Piney Forest through moving traffic. She seemed a little confused as cars dodged her coming from McDonald’s. Our light was green and cars were steadily trying to move around her then this young man gets out of his car to help her cross in traffic. We hear so much about the bad in Danville, I thought I would share something good. Good job young man whom ever you are! God bless him!
