What would you do if you saw a child freezing in the street?

Hidden cameras capture reactions of people faced with dilemma

A boy shivers in the harsh Oslo winter, pathetically wrapping his arms around himself on a bus stop bench. He isn't wearing a coat and temperatures in the Norwegian capital regularly plunge to -10C during winter.

The answer, it seems from the reactions of passers-by in this video, is you would help the child.

A heartbreaking scene, but the actions of the ordinary people who witnessed the plight of 11 year old Johannes Lønnestad Flaaten is both joyous and inspiring.
But what if those children were somewhere else, like Syria?

Should out of sight be out of mind? No, says the charity SOS Barnebyer, who are behind this video. It is helping children affected by the Syrian crisis and hopes “warm-hearted” Norwegians will help their appeal for warm clothing.
