A group of three Canadian teenagers went above and beyond to help a woman whose car broke down. Aeron McQuillin, Bailey Campbell, and Billy Tarbett were driving to grab some coffee at Tim Hortons when they saw a car pulled off to the side of the road.
They noticed that there was steam coming out from under the hood so they pulled over to assist. They popped the hood to take a look at the engine and told the woman and her passenger that the vehicle likely needed a new engine and advised them not to drive it.
The woman explained she didn't have the money for a tow truck, and the trio volunteered to push her car back to her house.
Another motorist, Dan Morrison, pulled over to assist and followed McQuillin as he dropped his car off at the woman's house. They grabbed some bottles of water and a speaker as they headed back to the woman's Chevy Cobalt.
"We weren't really thinking of how far it'd be. We were just jamming out," Tarbett said.
It took them just under two hours to push the car back to the woman's home.
"We were at the right place at the right time, and this is one of those stories that we can look back on in 10 years and say it was one of those crazy things we did, but it was all worth it," said McQuillin.
