An experiment was held in Oslo, Norway, where they wanted to see just how people react to an abandoned boy, shivering in the cold by himself. When the world seems to be completely self-absorbed, this experiment shows humanity in a different way than you might expect. People’s reactions as they passed him may surprise you.
A hidden camera was recording from the next street, capturing every passer by’s reaction.
Without fail, people would stop and ask the shivering boy if he’s all right.
Even if it took them a few seconds at first.
The boy would tell the strangers that he was completely alone, waiting to meet his classmates.
Even though most people stopped and thought about what to do…
Their goodness would shine through. This woman hands the boy her scarf, wrapping him up.
Another man lets the child borrow his coat while he sits and waits patiently with him.
Another young girl just hands over her gloves, no questions asked.
This girl, who seemed distracted at first, was so moved by the boy’s plight that she even gave him her warm, fleece jacket.
Time and time again, people continued to help the boy.
The concern on their faces was obvious.
Even though they didn’t know him, but they didn’t hesitate to help this child in need.
It’s hard not to smile after seeing just what strangers would do to help this boy!
You can watch the whole thing unfold in the video below:
The world doesn’t seem to bleak and full of troubles when you see things like this. It’s reassuring to know there are more people with big, generous hearts than you think.
