In January, 88-year-old Opal Zucca fell when attempting to take her trashcan to the top of her driveway.

A sanitation worker named Billy Shelby witnessed the fall. So, ever since then, he has wheeled the trashcan for Zucca every day at her Missouri home. On Oct. 15, Zucca’s daughter Colette Kingston shared a video that her mother’s doorbell camera captured. It shows Shelby doing what he does regularly: helping Zucca.

In the video, Shelby gently guides Zucca up her driveway.

In January, my mom fell while trying to bring the trash can back up her driveway and got hurt. This gentleman from WasteManagement was there when it happened. Ever since, he has brought the can back up the driveway for mom. This was him today helping her; he demonstrates such care for her. It takes a village - such a small kind gesture but leaves a enormous relief for us. Thank you kind sir. Love, the Zucca family.

Once they reach the end, Shelby hugs Zucca and says, “God bless you, as always, darling.”

The Facebook video has received over 100,000 views.

Along with the video, Kingston wrote, “In January, my mom fell while trying to bring the trash can back up her driveway and got hurt. This gentleman from WasteManagement was there when it happened. Ever since, he has brought the can back up the driveway for mom. This was him today helping her; he demonstrates such care for her. It takes a village – such a small kind gesture but leaves an enormous relief for us. Thank you kind sir.”

Since the video’s gone viral, Shelby is being heralded as a hero for being there for Zucca when she’s needed him most.

Shelby explained that he “made a point of making sure” that Zucca never had another fall again.
