Boy Who Helps Mailman Goes Viral

Good Samaritan helps mailman during heat of 100 and up.

Thursday, outside temperatures were among the hottest so far this year, as the heat index reached over 105 degrees.
A heat advisory was in place for the entire Hampton Roads area from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Eight year old Carmine McDaniel, a Newport News boy, wanted to help his mailman beat the heat. He left a cooler filled with Gatorade and water on his front porch.
McDaniel explained his thinking to local reporters. “I just thought because it was really hot outside and I didn’t want him to maybe pass out or anything, because they are really important so people can pay their bills and stuff like that and I didn’t want him to pass out pretty much,” he said.

“Water and Gatorade. Thank you. Oh my God, yeah,” the mailman says as he discovers the box, in a video sent in to a local station by McDaniel’s proud mother.
