ORMOND, Florida (WXIA) -- The photo of a simple act of kindness is gaining traction on social media. Keith Kiel captured the photo of a Publix employee tying an elderly man's shoe.

"I snapped this because it was so unusual to see this in a person," Kiel told 11Alive's Julie Wolfe.

Kiel did a little investigating with the store's manager in Ormond, Fla. He found out the employee's name was Gage.

"An old man could not reach down to tie his shoe, so not only did Gage tie the one [untied shoe], but the other one as well. All with a smile," Kiel posted on his Facebook page.
