Viral Video: Lubbock Biker Helps Sick Elderly Man Seen Trying to Cross the Road
Reader's Digest recently shared a video of an elderly man in Lubbock being helped by a biker who saw him trying to cross the street. The biker noticed the man was shaking and having trouble crossing the street with his walker, standing in the middle of the road. The biker decided to stop and help him.
The video has been viewed nearly 900,000 times since it was posted and has been shared across Lubbock, garnering tons of shout-outs for the people in our city who do everything they can to help their neighbors.
The elderly man appeared to be confused while walking in the middle of the busy street. The good Samaritan who spotted him just might have saved his life by stopping to see if he was okay. Sometimes a few minutes of your time can make all the difference in someone else's life. Small acts of kindness like this are what make our city a great place to live.
Bikers don't always get the praise they deserve and are often looked down upon by others for their tattoos and free-spirited lifestyle. It's important to take notice of things like this and remember that we're all in it together, and our differences are what make us unique and special. There are so many wonderful people in the biking community who would give you the shirt off of their back, many of which are big 94.5 FMX fans. We love bikers, and we love seeing acts of love from their community such as the video above.
If you see a biker today, give them a big hug. And most importantly, watch out for them on the road. They're clearly watching out for us.
