Driver ditches bus mid-route to become little girl’s hero

A bus driver in Sweden made an unexpected stop on his route last week when he pulled over to aid a young girl who was crying on the sidewalk.

According to the Huffington Post, André Grandin pulled the bus over, got out, walked over to the 10-year-old girl and knelt down beside her.

The heartwarming moment was captured by passenger Emma Gustafsson, who tweeted a picture of the man comforting the girl.

“The bus driver stops at the way of a sad girl is crying, that’s what I call being kind-hearted!,” Gustafsson tweeted in Swedish.

The picture shows the girl kneeling on the sidewalk with her bike nearby.

After comforting the girl for a few minutes, the bus driver returned to the bus and continued on the route without a word, according to BBC News.

“It came from nowhere,” Gustafsson told BBC News. “We didn’t know what was going on. But then we saw that he walked up to a crying girl sitting on the road. It was really cute.”

BBC News reports the girl was crying because she had been upset by some other children.
