It was in Caldwell, Idaho, that a group of teenage boys spotted an elderly man on their way home from school.

The man collapsed in the street and the teen friends acted immediately.

Jose Gomez fell to the ground and could not reach his walker to get back up.

But the teenage boys didn’t stop there. After helping the man up, they walked with him all the way home. They wanted to make sure that he got home safely.

“If any of you have elderly family check on them make sure they are okay!”
