Young man steps in to help a senior citizen who is too scared to use an escalator.

By  | 

For most people, the idea of going up or down an escalator is not a big deal. You simply get on the steps and let the machine take you to where you need to go. Nothing to it right?

Unfortunately, this isn’t the case for everyone. There are some people, such as certain senior citizens, who are actually intimidated by big escalators. In this post, you’re going to see one of those senior’s and how one young man helped her through her fears.

“Grandma went with me shopping tonight in Ft Wayne, Just me, her and the two little ones. I was carrying all of the bags and trying to hold both girls hands as we went down the escalator. I didn’t realize until I stepped on that grandma was too scared to get on-I felt horrible as I watched her try again and again to get her footing right.

People walked around her, pushed by her or asked her to step to the side- until this amazing man saw her. Not only was he not ashamed to help her, but held her hand the entire way down and helped her off. Thank you so so much to him.” – Writes Leah Kerr on Facebook.
