GRIFFIN, Ga. – A photo of a 17-year-old boy’s act of kindness toward a stranger is making people across the country smile.

Connie Belle Jenkins Sweet tells FOX 5 that she was buying cleaning supplies at Dollar General on Sunday when her nephew spotted someone in need.

“We were about to pull off and leave when she was trying to get out of her car, but she was struggling to get on the sidewalk,” Sweet said. “She could barely walk.”

At that point, Sweet says that her nephew, 17-year-old Senquavious Driver, hopped out of the car and ran to her side.

“He helped her in the store and shopped with her and he walked her back out to her car,” she said. “She was only going in for a soda, but she barely could even get in the store.”

According to FOX 5, the 81-year-old woman says she was recovering from a back injury.
