She explained that the elderly man looked hesitant to get on the escalator, and a crowed started to form around him.

“It was clear he was feeling unsure, and this young man offered the simplest kindness: an out-reached arm and a ‘Can I help you on, sir?'” wrote Accorsi Picard. “He quietly started to explain to the young man that he had gotten stuck on an escalator once and was a little scared.”

Accorsi Picard thanked the young man in the post for his simple gesture.

“Whoever this young man is, your family raised you right! Thank you!” wrote Accorsi Picard.
