Clerk's Act Of Kindness Goes Viral

ORMOND BEACH, Fla. (NEWS13/CNN) -- A young man's act of kindness toward a senior citizen at a grocery store in Florida has gone viral.

Gage Boucher, 20, spends several nights a week working as a stock clerk at the Publix off Granada Boulevard in Ormond Beach. But its a random act of kindness that Boucher performed last weekend that has gone viral on social media.

In the photo, you can see Boucher helping an elderly man by bending down to tie his shoelaces.

"I didn't really think nothing of it. I just came in the next day and I just realized it was big, I guess," Boucher said.

But, when Boucher saw the man who needed his help, he didn't hesitate to act. "I just seen he was struggling," Boucher explained. "I looked over and he was going to do it and I just asked him to do it. I did his one shoe and I did the other.  He was trying to give me money, in the picture you can see hes got his wallet and I said 'dont worry about it. Ill just do it."

Keith Kiel, who took the picture, said he was in the store to buy some steaks, but he was so moved by the random act of kindness that he had to capture the moment.  "Ive never seen that in a long long time, other than opening a door for someone and I was touched.  I actually physically got a little emotional and I fumbled for my camera and I was going 'please let me get this shot."

Boucher hopes his good deed will be an inspiration to others.
