Brittany McKee, a nurse and mom from Georgia, recently stopped in at a Walmart with her husband when she witnessed a touching act-of-kindness from an employee named Jason. So she shared about it on Facebook, because in 2017, no good deed goes un-posted.
Apparently a customer had passed out and fallen on the floor, then came to and was feeling dizzy. So McKee, a registered nurse, stayed with her until the ambulance came, she explained on Facebook. She described the Walmart staff as "amazing," and especially an employee later identified as manager Jason Lewis, who sat with the woman for nearly half an hour and comforted her, reports WRDW.

Following my appointment this morning to check on our growing baby boy, my husband and I stopped at Walmart in Evans to pick up a couple of things. As we were walking to the refrigerated section, we noticed a woman who had passed out and fallen on the floor. Being a registered nurse, my first instinct was of course to stop, assess, and be there to help. She had regained orientation, but did say she was on blood thinners and felt dizzy. So I stayed with her, along with her daughter and the Walmart personnel, until the ambulance came and tried to encourage her to stay seated. The Walmart staff was amazing. They kept in contact with dispatch as we waited on the bus to arrive. Then there was Jason. I don't know his last name, but this man, no questions asked got down on the floor with this woman and supported her back so she could lean against him. He literally got down on the floor to serve her, not because he was asked to do it, he wasn't, but because he wanted to. The media lately shows our country divided, filled with hate and racial tension, but this right here was one human being loving and serving another without condition of race or obligation. While we waited, another man stopped, knelt down and prayed over this woman. What I experienced today was love, kindness, and serving. We are human beings, each and every one of us regardless of how much pigmentation our skin has or doesn't have. I couldn't help but share because the media doesn't seem to report this... the unity and the positive that occurs. This right here is real life, this is what it's all about, not hate.
Awwww. Slight dig at the media aside (we are the media and we are reporting on this!), her post is clearly well-intentioned.
Her post went viral, with over 200,000 shares since she posted it yesterday. And commenters are praising god for Jason.
Jason told WRDW he was humbled by the impact of his actions but, for him, what he did was no big deal. "That's how my parents do it," he said. "I just wanted to live a good life and that's just one of the results of it—being able to render help when it's actually needed."
