School Kid Carries His Tired Mate Over The Finishing Line During Cross-Country Run
This is the moment two school children had a "Brownlee brothers moment" when one picked up the other and carried him across the finishing line.
10-year-old Riley Watson was 60ft from the finish line of a cross-country race when he suddenly fell to the ground with stitch.
Lucky for him, classmate Julian Otu saved the day by carrying him in his arms.
The act of heroism occured at an inter-school race in Grimsby. The magical moment was caught by local photographer Jon Corken.

Julian told the Sun: "I'd rather not have won and helped my friend than leave him there."
Shortly after going viral, many compared the act to that of Alistair Brownlee, who helped his brother Jonny over the Triathlon World Series finishing line in Mexico, botching his own chance of winning.
"What Julian did encompasses how we want our children to be. He has exemplified his caring attitude," the boys' head teacher, Amanda Turner, said.
"He is one of our young leaders where he helps support younger children within the school with extra classes.
"I am proud to say we have a school full of Julians."
