A Georgia man is being hailed a hero for helping a stranded disabled woman whose wheelchair broke down and pushing her home.
Father-of-two Bilal Quintyne, 24, of Smyrna, was on a jog when he saw the woman in need, her wheelchair engine dead and her wheels slanted partially on the busy street and on the sidewalk.
The amateur boxer then lent a helping hand and pushed the woman back to her apartment complex 30 minutes away, all while in 90-degree heat.
Bilal Quintyne, 24, rescued a disabled woman whose wheelchair broke down in the middle of the road, pictured above pushing her along
He found her on a road with her chair engine dead and her wheels partially on the busy street and partially on the sidewalk
She asked him to phone emergency services, but he said he could take her home himself
He pushed her for 30 minutes to her apartment complex in sweltering 90-degree heat
‘God’s Plan. God’s Work. Her battery gave out and she didn’t no how she was getting home. God blessed me with a able body. So WE pulled her home. A mile or not I wouldn’t go home until she was home. Period,’ he wrote along with a video clip of his rescue on Facebook on May 5.
His video has since gone viral with 67,000 shares.
Video of the good deed shows Quintyne leaping into action and pushing her all the way home, a 30 minute commute.
But his favor was no easy feat. He pushed her through tough uphill streets, preaching along the way.
‘I don’t care what you’re going through. When God calls you for help, you’re supposed to help, period. I don’t care what you going through personally. When he stops you to help, you’re supposed to help, period,’ he said, sweating as he pushed along.

Quintyne is a father-of-two and amateur boxer. He hopes his good deed will spread positivity
Speaking on his good deed he said: ‘I was doing my job as a man. There’s so much hatred in the world and it costs nothing to love someone’
His friend behind the camera says ‘actions speak better than words’.
‘She asked if I could call for help and I said, “I’m in good shape. Where is your house? I’ll take you myself,”‘ he said to Yahoo.
‘When I learned she was on her way to the grocery store, I offered to go food shopping for her, but she wouldn’t allow me. She was crying, very grateful, and said that many people had driven by without stopping to help,’ he added.
After helping her home Quintyne headed to the gym despite having completed an already strenuous task.
He says he hopes to spread positivity and be a good example for his four-year-old son and six-year-old daughter.
‘I was doing my job as a man. There’s so much hatred in the world and it costs nothing to love someone. My only goal in sharing this is to restore the values we’ve lost as people,’ he said.
