This good Samaritan is being hailed by the internet as a bright light in a weary world.

The woman was photographed by Ryan Hamilton, who was dining on the rooftop of Old Crow Smokehouse across from Wrigley Field in Chicago, Illinois.

Cubs fans were exiting the stadium after their 5-3 victory against the St. Louis Cardinals on Saturday when a blind spectator named Yusef Dale “spent several minutes” unsuccessfully trying to hail a cab.

According to Hamilton, a young woman who was later identified as Casey Spelman walked up to the blind man and asked if he needed help. When Dale said yes, she then stood right by his side until a taxi pulled up into view.

“Wanted to give a shout-out to this girl,” wrote Hamilton. “Awesome to see such kindness in a world that the media portrays so much hate in. Share freely in hopes that her kindness spreads.”

Dale later praised Spelman, telling WGN, “She did not presume I was incompetent or unable … she didn’t get in my personal space and most importantly, she didn’t touch me, which is an issue for some people with disabilities.”

36-year-old Spelman has since downplayed her role by saying that her good deed should be the norm—not something considered unusual.
