Photos showing a sophomore year student from Southwest Jiaotong University holding up a napping elderly man with his body went viral online and effectively debunked the notion that all young people on public transportation are the worst.
The photos were originally posted to Weibo by web user @大芸云22, and after spreading online, netizens crowned the student as the “Good citizen of China“,
Once he spotted the napping old man, the student quickly inched towards him and fashioned his leg into a pillow for the senior citizen. He remained standing still 20 minutes until the old man got off the bus.
“I didn’t think too much of it at the time, but I was worried that the grandpa would fall over” he said.
