NYSA, Poland -

Security camera footage of three teens going above and beyond to help a homeless man is going viral, and the three boys are being praised for doing what they could to help a homeless man in the town of Nysa in Poland.

In the video released by Nysa Police show the three boys walking down the street with a blanket, then putting it over a bench, apparently tucking the man in to sleep.

The boys, identified as Syzmon, Wojtek and Marcin, were thanked personally by the town's mayor. They told local TV station TVN24 that they came across the man one night and asked how they could help. The man reportedly told them he needed a blanket, so they set off to find one. In town they found someone throwing out an old quilt and brought it back to the man.

"We took the quilt for this gentleman. He hugged him and he thanked us," Szymon told the news station.  "He smiled and went to sleep. I am convinced that it was worth doing. If someone asks for help, we should give him a hand."

Nysa's mayor, Kordian Kolbiarz, recognized the boys' kind effort, saying, "That's a big gesture. I bow to you. The world needs such gestures."

    PULLMAN, Wash. - Six-year-old Denny Curran should be enjoying his last few days of summer before first grade. He should be teasing his brother, splashing in the pool, giving his parents a hard time about vegetables. Instead, Denny is dead, the victim of a horrific, freak bicycle accident that could happen to your child too. "Denny was an extraordinary child," his father Keith Curran told KHQ.
