Louis Jordan felt the need to help the woman in a wheelchair. The boy’s mom took a photo of the good deed and it went viral.


The teenage boy never thought that his random act of kindness would make him internet-famous. He just truly wanted to help the woman.

In the photo, Jordan can be seen holding an umbrella to offer shade to a woman in a wheelchair. Many social media users were instantly touched by Jordan’s good deed.

Talking to ABC7, Jordan recalled that the heat was excruciating and even he did not want to be out in the sun at the time.

He was supposed to pick his mother up from work downtown when he noticed the woman waiting for the METRO Lift under the scorching heat.


Jordan felt the need to help the woman and took out the umbrella in his car. He walked towards her and protected the woman with the umbrella’s shade.

As it turned out, the METRO Lift did not arrive until after an hour and 45 minutes. The time they spent together gave them a chance to talk.

Soon enough, Jordan found out the woman’s name is Michelle. From that point, they became good friends.

Jordan made it a point to always join Michelle as she waits for the METRO Lift as much as he could.

Bernette Botts, Jordan’s mother, said that Jordan had always been selfless. She recalled the time when her son rescued his grandmother after she was trapped during Hurricane Harvey


Botts said to ABC7, "She was trapped inside, four feet of water, no power. He called me back from my mom's and said, 'I got her.'"

The mother also shared how proud she is of her son.

As for Jordan, he said there are many ways to help people every day.

People like Jordan are proof that there is still hope for humanity. For more stories like this, visit our Twitter account, @amomama_usa.
