Will strangers come to the aid of a freezing boy? Published: February 21, 2014

For those who consider humanity a lost cause, consider this: At least we live in a world where strangers will still give a freezing child a coat. So we've got that going for us.

In a filmed experiment in Norway, a jacketless child actor was instructed to sit at a bus stop and look cold — not a difficult task, judging by the snow on the ground, according to Yahoo News.

Filmmakers from SOS Children's Villages, a charity that works to help abandoned, displaced and orphaned children, captured hidden footage of adults approaching the shivering child. In each case, according to Buzz60, the adult offers to help the kid with a jacket, gloves or a scarf.
