Incredible gesture by three pupils who saw Year 7 student crying on bus – Daily News

 A mum says her faith in humanity has been restored after three schoolboys came to the aid of a crying and lost Year 7 pupil  The 11-year-old had got on the wrong bus, and was getting further and further from home when the kind-hearted trio stepped in  The boy, who did not have a phone or any money had no means of getting home to Netherton, Liverpool, the Liverpool Echo reports  However, after spotting him crying, Year 11 student Tom O’Brien gave the boy £10 for a taxi, while Year 7 students Harry Campbell and Dylan Robson made sure he got home safe  The act of kindness was shared on Facebook by a mum and has since gone viral with thousands commenting on the post to congratulate the boys  Collette, Harry’s mum, said the whole situation ‘restores faith in humanity’.  She said: “It was my husband who saw Harry standing outside the house, talking to this boy we had never seen before  “Harry had told Dylan to ring the taxi to pick him up from our house, to make sure he got home safe  “Then he had walked him to ours and was stood outside waiting until the taxi came  “God love him, this little fella was upset and had got on the wrong bus and with it being his first day wouldn’t have known very many people either  “I asked Harry had he seen the boy today and how he was and he said he was fine and had thanked him  “I just think it is lovely. I’m very proud of him.  “It puts faith back in humanity and that little fella will know there are good people who will help him ”  Tom told teachers he was just happy the boy had got home safe and was pleased that teenagers are getting some good publicity  Now his dad Kenny has spoken out about how proud he is of his “thoughtful and caring” son  The 55-year-old said: “I am very proud of him.  “He is a very thoughtful lad and has a great personality  “He didn’t tell me what had happened until later in the night when he realised people were talking about it on Facebook  “He just said he was on the bus asking the Year 7’s how they had got on, on their first day and he noticed this kid sat on his own, looking anxious and upset and asked him was he okay  “The boy said he had got on the wrong bus and was getting further and further away from home so Tom thought on his feet, told him to get off the bus and gave him £10 for a taxi ”  Dylan’s mum Toni said she heard about what happened when her son got home from school  She said: “He came home and said that there was a boy on the wrong bus and he was upset  “He told me about Tom giving him the money and how he and Harry had rang a taxi  “I asked him how he had known the number to ring and he said he had Googled it.  “I am very proud of him I would hope that if it was my son in the same situation, someone would have helped him ”  The boys rang a Delta Taxi and the Liverpool Echo has since learned the driver didn’t charge the young boy for the journey  Headteacher of Holy Family Catholic High School Matthew Symes, said: “It is just lovely and at the start of the year it really sets the tone for everyone else  “Tom is an incredibly thoughtful and all round good guy.  “I went to see him yesterday after receiving a lot of calls from parents about what had happened  “And he said he was pleased at the publicity because many 15-year-olds get bad press  “But he was just pleased the boy had got home safe.  “But he has set a great example in front of a whole bus of Year 7’s – who have all that worry and anxiety about the bigger kids  “It is a brilliant example of the older pupils looking out for them.”
