Lifting the man onto his back, Weijie helped him cross the road and safely deposited him on the other side. Nicely done.
Speaking after the incident, according to quotes in the Daily Mail, Weijie said: “The road was quite busy, with a lot of cars. I was afraid that he (the elderly man) might feel unwell if I walked too fast.
