SINGAPORE: A young boy won the hearts of netizens for his kind act of shielding people from the pouring rain at a bus stop on Punggol Road.

A netizen who had benefited from the young boy’s kind deed shared a video of him holding up a light-coloured folding umbrella on the pavement in front of the open doors of a bus because of the gap between the roof and the bus.

The bespectacled boy, who looked to be around 10 years old, was dressed in a school uniform and carried a large rucksack on his back. It seems that he was getting wet even while he was helping others stay dry.
