Last Friday, an Austin Fire Department fire engine crew noticed a 95-year-old man struggling to mow his lawn in South Austin and decided to do something to help him. The C-shift crew from Engine 6, consisting of Lieutenant Matt Avery, Fire Specialist Eric Lupton, and Firefighters Wilson Rivas and Gus Wienhold, promptly stopped the vehicle and jumped out to give the elderly resident a hand.
Firefighter Rivas worked quickly to mow the hilly front yard while his colleagues assisted. Twitter user @epialla caught the firefighters in the middle of their good deed and tweeted a video of the act of kindness. She tagged the Austin Fire Department’s Twitter account and they retweeted the video, receiving thousands of views and likes.
Commenters on the post applauded the firefighters for their dedication to the community and praised them for their "excellent service to humanity."
