We All Know That Strangers Would Help Out a Freezing Child, But What About a Freezing 40-Year-Old Man?

- -

In this viral video posted by a Norwegian children's charity on February 19, strangers were quick to help out a child who was left out in the cold with no coat. The video was heartwarming (literally and figuratively), but what if the subject of the video was in a demographic that isn't usually the target of our sympathies? Say, a 40-year-old, balding, overweight dude?

Would people still be as eager to lend a helping hand?
