The North Dakota State Fair in Minot had rock band Weezer as one of their performers. A woman who was using a wheelchair struggled to view the stage until some good Samaritans got involved.

Kate Marthaler, a fan who also attended, shared an image on social media of the woman being hoisted up by other concert-goers. The group of men held her wheelchair on their shoulders so she could see the stage.

She was moved and inspired by the moment writing the caption:

“This right here is what I’m living to be a part of. This right here is the example I’m trying to show my kids. This right here is what I’m working to surround myself with every day.”

Marthaler commended the group adding:

“People who want to hold up others when they need it so we can all keep living our best lives together! This is awesome!! This is how it should be.”

Having lost both of his legs and being legally blind, he was taking longer to get home which took him around 25 minutes from the supermarket. Drivers actually honked at him as they drove by urging him to hurry up.

Then Seth Phillips, 16, and his mother, Amber Gilleylen, stopped their car and the teenager got out to push Beck the rest of the way home.

The boy’s mother recorded the act of kindness and shared it on Facebook.
