While driving his bus, Andre Grandin pulled to the side of the road and halted his journey, making his passengers wait – while he helped a sobbing ten-year-old-girl on the side of the road.
He has since been hailed a hero for his caring act. The ten-year-old, Emilia Behrendtz was crying alone on the side of the pavement, until Andre Grandin consoled her. It was revealed that the child was a victim of bullying by other children. After consoling her and making sure she was alright, he then got back onto the bus and continued his journey without uttering a word.
A passenger on the bus, Emma Gustafsson took a picture and shared it on Twitter in which it immediately went viral. “It came from nowhere. We didn’t know what was going on. But then we saw that he walked up to a crying girl sitting on the road. It was really cute.” said Emma.
