Cesar Larios was having a regular day at work, out with his work team, when things took an unexpected turn. The elevator they were holed up in got stuck, and along with them was an elderly woman.

While trying to keep calm and wait for help to arrive, the older adult made it known that she had problems standing for too long. It was at this point that Larios displayed an exceptional example of chivalry.

LARIOS BECAME A HUMAN CHAIR

Larios and his work buddies were carrying out a move in the 10-story facility back in 2014 and ended up being stuck in the elevator. However, what gave him more concern was Rita Young, the old woman who also mentioned that she was claustrophobic.

The young man, who was a student at the Art Institute of Florida, noticed that Young was in discomfort although she had her walking aide. He immediately launched into action, propping himself on all fours.

Larios offered his back as a seating platform while urging the senior citizen to sit. Larios played a makeshift human chair for half an hour before help came along. The old lady was getting uneasy, but he helped ease her discomfort.

LARIOS GOES VIRAL

The firefighters came in due time and pried open the elevator for the occupants to get out. However, the story was far from over. During their elevator ordeal, one of Larios’ workmates took photos of the 79-year-old woman sitting on his back.
