CCTV captured this traffic cop giving a senior man a piggyback ride across a busy street in southwest China’s Sichuan province.
The police officer was since praised by many, and he inspired his colleagues. His polite deed is indeed something we do not get to see every day.
In the footage, the senior man that relied heavily on a pair of walking sticks began crossing the road with other pedestrians that shortly got past him. Before the man was even halfway across the lane, the lights turned green, and traffic slowly resumed around him.
Fortunately, a policeman on duty that was later identified as Qin Weijie came to his rescue.
Seeing the old man stranded midway, Qin instantly approached him and carried him on top of his shoulders across seven lanes of busy traffic as several cars paused to let the two pass.
In another video, it seemed that the duo rested in the middle of the road before they resumed to cross lanes of traffic moving in the opposite direction.
The heart-melting footage was caught on surveillance camera at the junction close to Sanhui overpass at the Mianyang nearby Sichuan province. The incident happened at a time just around morning rush hour.
The video was shared on Mianyang Traffic Police Brigade’s official Weibo account, a Chinese social media platform.
