An Asda delivery driver has been called a ‘hero’ after he found a 90 year old woman sat alone in the dark. The supermarket worker has gone viral after his response was posted online.

Michael from Hartlepool was delivering groceries to the elderly customer when he found her sat in the dark. The woman’s light bulbs had just gone out and due to mobility struggles, she was unable to change them herself.

Manchester Evening News reports that Michael stepped in and changed the lights rather than leave the lady waiting for her carer to come and do it. Michael, 23, has worked for ASDA for one year and said: “”I couldn’t leave her in the dark so I just asked her where her spare bulbs were and quickly changed them all.

“It only took a moment, but she was very grateful. I will help anybody if I can. I love the interaction with all my customers.” Customers have now praised Michael in their hundreds. Liz Murphy said: “Well done Michael, an act of kindness goes a long way.”

Angela List commented: “Well done this chap thank heavens he was able to help this poor lady out in the way he did.” Karen Martin said: “The world needs more people like Michael. A small gesture can make a big difference.”

Janet Ratcliff commented: “Thank you Michael for helping someone frail & vulnerable. You are a very kind & thoughtful man.” Ann Steadman said: “Well done Michael.. You are a credit to who ever raised you young man. Asda are lucky to have you on their team. Walk tall and look the world straight in the eye.”

Store manager Emma, who nominated Michael for an Asda service superstar award, said: “We are all so proud of Michael for not only carrying in the lady’s shopping, but changing the lightbulbs for her too. It was just a small thing but the lady was incredibly grateful, having been sat in the dark. Michael is an all-round good guy who is very kind and who will do anything to help his customers.”
