Three Boys Spotted On CCTV Selflessly Helping Homeless Person
Three boys have been congratulated and rewarded after they were seen on CCTV helping a homeless person in Poland. Szymon, Wojtek and Marcin were captured walking through the city of Nysa with a blanket and pillow before laying it out for the displaced individual.
The three boys apparently encountered the homeless man on a cold December night and struck up a conversation. He told them about how hard it is to live on the streets and requested if the boys had anything that could help him sleep.
Unfortunately, the trio didn't have anything on them, however they went out searching for a blanket or pillow. Miraculously, they stumbled upon both when they spotted someone throwing out furniture.
See the selfless act for yourself here.
Szymon has told TVN24: "We took the quilt for this gentleman. We hugged him. He smiled and went to sleep. I am convinced that it was worth doing. If someone asks for help, he should give him a hand."
City guards witnessed the whole event and published it online, which attracted the attention of the Mayor's office. The three boys were called in to be praised for their selfless acts and also received a smartwatch each as a reward.
Deputy Mayor of Nysa, Marek Rymarz, told Szymon, Wojtek and Marcin: "Many people help anonymously and selflessly. That was the case in this case, but in recognition of the gesture of these young people helped with urban monitoring. It is important that this normality remains in them. And to be aware that good comes back."
It's understood that the homeless man they helped that night is no longer living on the streets.
The act was really altruistic, but that same spirit of generosity has been seen in homeless people helping others. Paul Calderbank spent two days trying to track down the owner of a bag left in Bolton, UK.

The homeless man found it outside a pub and worked tirelessly to reunite it with Daisy Owen. He reportedly stopped anyone in the street to see if they knew Daisy, and eventually ran into one of her friends.
The 20-year-old wanted to repay Paul for spending a solid 48 hours trying to track her down, so she started a fundraising page, which has so far raised more than £3,200 ($4,182).
Daisy told LADbible: "He was so happy. He was talking about how he wants to get some new clothes and said that he wants to concentrate on getting out of the hostel as he's been there for 12 months and getting a place of his own.
"He's really overwhelmed with the support he's getting from not just the people of Bolton but the people all over the UK."
