After A Little Boy Was Left Shivering In The Freezing Cold, I Didn’t Expect This To Happen. Amazing.

This experiment restored my faith in humanity.

An organization dedicated to helping children, SOS Barnebyer, held a social experiment in Oslo, Norway. They wanted to see just how people would react to a lone boy, shivering in the cold by himself. During a time in history when self-absorbed arrogance seems at an all-time high, this experiment show humanity in a much softer light. People’s reactions as they passed him by at a bus stop may surprise you.

A hidden camera was placed across the street, capturing every passer by’s reaction.
