8-Year-Old Georgia Boy Stops Traffic to Help Elderly Woman Up the Steps

Maurice Adams Jr.'s mom said he is often helping others.

A kindhearted 8-year-old boy wasted no time as he stopped to help an elderly woman get up the stairs in his neighborhood.

Maurice Adams Jr., of Georgia, was riding home in the car with his mom, Contrica Hill, when they spotted an elderly woman heading across the street with a walker.

Hill said as soon as her son saw the woman trying to walk up the steps alone, he asked his mom if he could help her. She stopped the car so he could.

In a video recorded by bystander, Riley Duncan, Maurice can be seen holding the lady’s back and kindly escorting her up the steps before hugging her.

"He got in the car, and he was like, 'She said I was special,'" Hill said of her son. "It’s awesome."

The third-grader is always helping others, his mother said.

“Countless times, he’ll help people put their groceries in their car at Walmart," Hill said. "He’s really kindhearted."

Duncan, who later found out who the boy was with an internet search, rewarded Maurice with $100 for his kind deed.

"It brought tears to my eyes," Duncan said. "You don't see young kids helping elderly people. It was so amazing that his mom stopped traffic so he could help."
