A noble act from a young boy from Kern County went viral after one woman was blown away and thankful for his act of kindness.

A Shafter woman said she and her husband were grocery shopping and when they arrived they had accidentally set her purse on top of the car as they were unloading the car and forgot about it.

The next day she noticed someone had rung the doorbell just before 7:30 a.m. that morning and saw her purse outside. She looked over the footage from her camera and realized it was a boy trying to help her.

In the video, you can see him riding his bike, stop, turn around, grab the purse, and quickly ran it to the house.

The woman says "around the nation (you) can see this and realize that it didn't cost this little boy a penny to be kind."
