What Happened When Strangers Saw A Little Boy Shivering Outside Without A Coat

What Happened When Strangers Saw A Little Boy Shivering Outside Without A Coat

The Huffington Post  | by  Sarah Barness

When an 11-year-old boy sat at a bus stop without a jacket in Oslo, Norway, hidden cameras captured a series of very special moments.

The experiment was filmed by the Norwegian branch of the SOS Children's Villages International charity as part of a campaign to provide warm clothing for displaced children in Syria, according to The Nordic Page.

In the video above, the majority of bystanders offer their coats or gloves to the boy.

"People should care as much about children in Syria as they care about this boy," Synne Rønning, the information head of SOS Children's Villages Norway, told The Local. She also noted that the child was a volunteer who was never in any danger during the filming.
