A marine who gallantly dropped back in a race to help a nine-year-old boy finish has become an internet sensation.
Lance Corporal Myles Kerr was competing in the annual run while home on leave in Charlevoix, Michigan when he spotted Boden Fuchs struggling to keep up.
The boy reportedly got separated from his group and asked 19-year-old Kerr: ‘Sir, will you please run with me?’
