Speaking to STOMP, the camera person said:

“There was heavy traffic and the traffic light had turned green for vehicles. The car beside me suddenly stopped, which made me wonder why. That’s when I saw the elderly man having difficulty crossing the road due to mobility issues. The DHL driver stopped his vehicle at one side, crossed over and came to provide assistance.”

Truly a wonderful act of kindness!


According to DHL driver Anson Chung, he was on his way making a delivery when he saw the elderly attempting to cross the road.

“The traffic light had already turned green and cars were stopping for him. I just wanted to help him cross the road safely so he could get home. That’s all that crossed my mind.”

“I stopped my van at a safe place and went to help him. He had problems walking, so I decided to give him a piggyback.”

Speaking to STOMP, the Managing Director of DHL Express Singapore Christopher Ong was proud of Anson Chung, adding that he has a big heart.

“We are glad that he was there at the right time and place to lend a helping hand. He is a role model to all our employees of how we can be connecting people and improving lives beyond just delivering parcels.”

What Anson did serves as proof that not all superheroes wear capes.

We sincerely hope that when met with the same situation, each and every one us would lend a helping hand to restore faith in humanity just like what Anson has done.
