Three teenage boys are going viral after they took the term 'good samaritan' to a whole new level with an amazing act of kindness this week. Three Niagara boys are being praised after pushing a woman's car for nine kilometers to save her the expense of paying for a tow truck. It took the Niagara teens about two hours to push the car to the woman's home.
On Wednesday, a local resident Dan Morrison took to Facebook to share the story. Morrison stated that he was driving home from work at around 12:30 in the morning when he spotted a car stranded in the middle of Highway 20 in Fonthill, with smoke coming from the car.
Morrison states that three teenage boys, who the Standard confirms to be Aeron McQuillin, Bailey Campbell and Billy Tarbett, stopped when they noticed the car and helped to push it to a nearby lot.
The Standard states that the three teens were on their way to a Tim Hortons on Tuesday night when they noticed the commotion on the highway, and immediately went to go an see what the problem was. Being car enthusiasts, they were more than happy to help.
However, once they got the car to the lot, the lady of the car stated that she couldn't afford to call a tow truck and had no idea what she was supposed to do with the car.
Upon hearing this news, the three boys stated that they couldn't just leave the woman stranded and agreed to push the stranger's car 9km to her home in Welland.
It took the trio about two hours to get to her house, while Morrison drove behind them with his hazard lights on. The teens state that they arrived back home at around 4:30 in the morning.
15-year-old Bill Tarbett told the Standard that they "had nothing better to do, but even if we did I would like to think that we would have helped her anyway."
Since Morrison posted about the trio on his Facebook, the post has gone viral with over 18,000 shares.
