Runners in the 2021 New York City Marathon on November 7 helped a fellow participant who fell over just shy of the course’s end finish the run.
This video by andieekent captured the heartfelt moment. Two men can be seen holding the runner up by his arms as they move toward the finish line.
“A runner fell to the ground less than 200m from the finish line,” andieekent wrote on TikTok. “Two complete strangers picked him up [and] made sure he crossed the finish line.”
Event organizers said 33,000 participants would traverse the five boroughs of New York City, starting in Staten Island and ending in Manhattan’s Central Park.
