‘Parking Boy’ Earns Praise after Chasing Tricycle to Return Package Dropped by Passenger

With so many stories about people getting killed by robbers or losing their hard-earned cash to unscrupulous thieves dressed in decent clothes, it is refreshing to hear news of a poor boy going out of his way to return a package dropped by the passenger of a passing vehicle.

This heartwarming incident happened along the Quezon Park in Dumaguete City, central Philippines.

According to netizen Abe Datu who caught the moment on camera, he was just driving along the road by the park when he noticed the boy pick something up from the ground. The kid immediately perused the contents of the plastic bag.

Upon seeing that there were important things inside, the kid began to run so he could chase the tricycle and return the package to the passenger who dropped it.

It was starting to drizzle and his shorts were dropping down but the kid was determined to return the plastic bag to its owner. Datu’s dashcam recorded the kid running as fast as his little legs could carry until he finally reached the tricycle.

Showing that he only did this out of the pureness of his young heart and not after a reward, the kid could be seen running back to his post as parking boy for motorcycles at the park after he gave the dropped package to the owner riding the tricycle!

The young boy’s actions earned praise on social media, with many people saying this kid would clearly have a bright future ahead if he remains honest and good.

Many also commented how this young kid surely came from a poor family yet he was not tempted to take the item for himself.

Datu was not able to get the kid’s name and ask about the contents of the package but many people are wishing the boy good luck in his life.
