Maurice Adams Jr. and his mother were driving through Milledgeville, Georgia, on May 26 when they spotted an unnamed lady trying to climb steps at an intersection, using a walker. He asked his mom to stop, jumped out of the SUV and walked with the lady, with one hand holding her walker and another on her back to steady her. A passerby named Riley Duncan saw the boy and began filming.


As soon as they reached safety at the top of the stairs, the lady hugged Maurice and called him "special." Then he scampered back to his SUV. Maurice did not know he was filmed until Duncan uploaded it and it went viral. Speaking of Maurice's action, his mom said, "It's very touching. It just shows respect and raising your kids right goes a long way."
