College Student Allows Elderly Lady A Seat On His Back

Posted: Updated:
A good samaritan saves the day for an elderly woman trapped inside an elevator.

Seventy-nine-year-old Rita Young lives at Grand Court, a senior living facility in Tampa, Florida.

Young can't spend too much time on her feet without becoming weak, so when the elevator doors refused to open, she thought she was in for a world of pain.

Luckily, twenty-three-year old Cesar Larios, a mover for 'College Hunks Hauling Junk,' was in the elevator with Young.

He let the woman use his back as a human chair while they waited to be rescued.

Young recalls, "He put his arm around me and said, 'now don't get upset,' he said, 'I'm here and I'm going to take care of you.'”

Young and Larios were stuck in the elevator for a half hour before help finally came.

“She kind of started putting her weight on my back little by little and then after a few seconds she was just, like, chilling on my back,” says Larios.

Rita Young says the college student is her special angel for helping her in a time of need.
