When Tommy Adams noticed an elderly man with a walker clearing snow, he knew just what to do.

According to WTVR CBS 6 News, the Nottoway High School senior was on his way home from the DMV when he told his mother to stop the car. He then approached the man and proceeded to shovel his driveway for him.

"I told him to get back into his car because it was cold," the Virginia teen told WTVR. "Other people who saw him in the snow should have had the decency to stop."

Tommy's mother, Teresa, captured the sweet moment on camera. "I was so proud, I started to cry," she said to WTVR.
