Stomper Faith was waiting at a bus stop along Eu Tong Sen Street at about 10.50am on Thursday (Aug 30) when she saw a worker helping an elderly man who was trying to cross the road to get to the bus stop she was at. 

She said: "The worker just came out of nowhere to help the elderly uncle cross the road junction outside Singapore General Hospital.

"The uncle was struggling to step down from the kerb across and the worker quickly went to help him, although I'm not sure if the worker was already holding onto the uncle before the latter crossed the road.

"The uncle walked very slowly so the worker held onto him and patiently walked him across while maintaining the same walking speed.

"Under such hot weather, the pair took almost two minutes to cross the road.

"My faith in humanity has been restored."

Just a reminder, this is not the first time workers have been spotted lending a helping hand, it isn't even the third time.

On July 11, a group of workers and a soldier helped to push a stalled bus that was stranded along Lower Delta Road.

When a car found itself stuck on a staircase at Waterway Point last September in 2017, it was also a group of foreign workers who helped to free the vehicle without any hesitation.

On May 28, commuters alighting at a bus stop opposite Block 323B Sengkang East Way were shielded from the rain by three foreign workers who took time out of their break to do it.
