ATLANTA, Ga. — An Atlanta man caught a heartwarming moment at a train station, and the photo is going viral.

Facebook user Redd Desmond Thomas posted the photo Nov. 14.

The photo shows a young man with a tie around his neck. An older man appears to be helping him to tie it.

Thomas said in his post that the younger man was struggling with his tie, when a woman noticed and told her husband.

“The older gentleman moved without hesitation [almost a reflex response] and gave him a step-by-step tutorial; then – afterward – the elder gentleman watched the young gentleman repeat the steps and show him that he had it,” Thomas said in the post.

Thomas said he was close enough to hear the exchange and captured the photo in the middle of the tutorial.

The photo has gotten over 137,00 shares and 385,000 likes.
