We all - or at least such is the hope - know what the humane thing to do is when we spot something vile - something that we can help rectify. But how many of us really have the courage to do what it takes? Well, these four boys had it, and what they did when they saw a horrific act in progress will truly inspire you and restore your lost faith in humanity.
Check it out.
Here's what happened, and exactly how it happened.
Their eyes fell on a man - quite well-dressed - carrying a young girl over his shoulder. Now here's the strange part: the girl appeared to be intoxicated and was kicking and screaming and was unexpectedly dirty. The man claimed to be taking her girl to her father, but the boys were soon to realize that something was not right.
The boys followed the man and saw him enter a dark stairwell. They got the shock of their lives when they saw what the man was doing - he was raping the 15-year-old.
The brave boys did what was the right thing to do - they chased the vile man down and kept him restrained until the police arrived on scene.
Now, these four boys are being presented with medals of bravery - a token well deserved.
