A boy in north China was captured "directing traffic" on a flooded road, melting the hearts of Chinese netizens.

A heavy downpour hit Shijiazhuang, Hebei Province, recently, causing flooding in some areas, Knews reported.

To prevent passers-by or drivers becoming trapped in deep water, a thoughtful boy stood in the center of a flooded road, loudly reminding people to make a detour.

When some appeared to be about to proceed anyway, the boy walked into the deep area to prove that the road was impassable.

The boy insisted on "directing traffic" there for quite some time.

A netizen captured the hard-working boy on video and posted it online — it soon went viral.

Web users highly applauded the boy for his kindness, with one commenting, "He is definitely being brought up right!"
