Woman Hits Record When She Spots Curious Little Boy Peeking at Stranger's Phone on Train

Big cities carry a certain reputation. It can be easy to forget the good that happens in a big city like New York when all we hear about are crime, homelessness and poverty.

But true to Frank Sinatra‘s old ballad, New York is the “city that doesn’t sleep” and many leave their “small town blues” behind for just one bite out of the Big Apple.

Still, big cities can be intimidating to those who have never lived in one. I’ve always wanted to visit Lady Liberty’s hometown, but admittedly have wondered if it’s safe.

We see people in movies get mugged in alleys and on the subway all the time. These things happen anywhere, of course, but there’s an upside to every downside — a light at the end of every subway tunnel, if you will.

For example, if you didn’t happen to catch season 12 of America’s Got Talent, you missed quite the show given by a subway singer named Mike Yung.

Mr. Yung has made a living singing his heart and soul out in the New York subway tunnels. Watch as he blows the audience — and the judges — away with his rendition of “Unchained Melody.”

I know I’d like this gentleman around if I ever make it to New York City. What a sweet soul with a beautiful voice!

But Mike Yung isn’t the only amazing human to be found in the tunnels beneath those big city streets. An even more recent set of viral videos taken by a subway passenger has captured the hearts — and shares — of thousands on social media.

Kia Tatiyana Davis noticed a man and a little boy sitting across from her on the train. As she watched, she decided to start recording.

The footage she captured will melt your heart. The boy, who appears to be between the ages of 7 and 10, looks on as the man next to him plays on his phone.

At first the man seems to ignore the boy. Truthfully, I’m not one for strangers looking over my shoulder either.

But then the atmosphere shifts when the boy starts speaking. We can’t hear what he’s saying, but we can guess he’s probably commenting on whatever game the man is playing.

What happens in the final clip is something you have to see to believe. This man probably has no idea who this little boy is or where he comes from.

Yet, out of the kindness of his heart, he decides to share with this kid. This just goes to show there is still love in this world.

“What I witnessed today on the train. I almost cried y’all,” Davis wrote. And she’s not the only one who felt that way.

While some commenters said doing something like this is a big mistake they’ll never make again, others responded with heart, smiley and teary-faced emojis.

It’s definitely good to always practice caution. But I’d say this is one case in which no ill-intent was meant. Just a little boy and a guy on the subway, sharing a little common ground over a fun game on a phone.
