Off-duty firefighter carries elderly woman upstairs at RodeoHouston


HOUSTON, TX (KXAN/ NBC) — A photo is capturing hearts across the country. 

Firefighter Thomas Harwell saw an elderly woman struggling to get down some stairs on Saturday at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. So, he helped her to her seat.

Afterwards, he waited until the rodeo ended to make sure she could get out of the arena.

That’s when Harwell’s wife, Shayla, captured the photo showing him carrying the elderly woman up the stairs.

It has been shared more than 5,000 times on Facebook.

The family says the elderly woman was “grinning ear-to-ear” after the kind gesture.
