A father captured the moment his two young sons opted to help a man in a wheelchair shovel snow in Wisconsin.

On Dec. 12, Daniel Medina of Milwaukee shared a Facebook picture showing his two boys with shovels in hand, clearing the snow from the sidewalk.

Behind them is a wheelchair-bound man—also with a shovel in hand.

“Proud dad moment,” Medina wrote. “We’re driving down South 60th Street near Morgan, and my two sons, aged 10 and 6, asked me to pull over because they just saw a guy in a wheelchair trying to shovel his corner lot and they wanted to help.”

“I didn’t even see the guy because I was concentrating on driving in the snow,” Medina further explained on the “Today” show. “My oldest, Daniel, said, ‘Pull over, let’s go help him.’ So I said, ‘OK, let’s go.’ We pulled up next to him, and Daniel asked if he had any extra shovels.”

He said the boys stayed for about 45 minutes to shovel the lot.

“He was grateful,” Medina said, referring to the man they helped. “He kept telling us thanks and kind of supervised us, made sure we dug out the bus stop in the corner, and also his car because he had a doctor’s appointment the next day.”

According to the Journal Sentinel newspaper, Milwaukee received several inches of snow since last weekend.

Meanwhile, WISN-TV reported that more snow is on the way for the weekend.
