“Teenagers Victor Ornelas, Isaac Hernandez, Diego Ramirez, Devan Ornelas, and Josh Sorg are best of friends, always hanging out together. While hanging out, they saw an elderly man in need and went to his aid. It happened a couple of weeks ago, they were riding in the car to play basketball when they spotted an elderly man fall down while struggling with his walker.”

“‘I saw that he fell so I stepped on my brakes,’ Hernandez said. ‘We parked and we all ran out. We picked him up and we asked if he was okay, he said he was fine,’ he said. ‘So we just kept walking with him. We said we were going to walk him all the way to his house. We helped him inside, and his knee was bleeding. So, we grabbed napkins put alcohol on it and cleaned him up.’”

“Jose Gomez is the elderly man they helped that day and is so grateful the boys were in the right place at the right time.”

“What the boys didn’t know at that time, is that someone captured their good deed on camera from across the street and posted it on Facebook. That post quickly went viral.”
