Teen becomes sensation after carrying home elderly man’s shopping

The young shop assistant’s good deed went viral after Samantha Jayne Brady took a photo of 18-year old Christian Trousedale walking a 95-year-old man and his shopping home — and then posting the image on Facebook. Christian had asked his manager at the store in Horwich, near Bolton, Greater Manchester in England if he could just help the elderly gentleman home with his bag of groceries and he replied, “Yes, that would be the right thing to do.”

Now the random act of kindness has since attracted attention from all over the world, with the teenage hero admitting he is “blown away” by the number of kind gestures and remarks from people as far away as the United States, Norway and Australia. And Christian admitted he’s been “blown away” by the positive reaction to his humble deed.

Miss Brady, who works at an office close to the supermarket, posted the image on her Facebook page because she was amazed by Christian’s “selfless, thoughtful and caring gesture.”

She posted the image on the social networking site with the comment “I desperately want this lad to get some kind of recognition from his workplace so if this gave you a little more faith in mankind PLEASE share! Good people still exist.”

Christian added that he and the elderly gentleman had a “good chat about everything from the General Election [Britain goes to the polls on Thursday May 7] to the history of Horwich.”
He also added that the elderly shopper knew a great deal about everything. Christian also played down his act of kindness and the worldwide attention by saying, “It is very strange because this is just something I would normally do, my parents have raised me to treat other people like you want to be treated yourself.”
