A woman witnessed something that touched the hearts of people around the world: The reaction a 12-year-old girl who had found an injured dog.

When Mayane looked out her window on a rainy afternoon, she didn't expect to record such a touching video. Across the street, she spotted a girl whose kindness made Mayane immediately reach for her phone. 

Schoolgirl Good Samaritan 

It was a rainy day in Brazil, just like any other day between April and May. In the video, we see a girl wearing a backpack and walking along a busy road on her way back from school. She noticed a dog lying on the pavement and immediately placed her own umbrella over the animal to keep it from getting wet.

The dog must have been shivering from the cold because the girl took off her jacket and wrapped it around the dog. Then she bent over the animal, took him in her arms and left with him.

Mayane was shocked - such an act of selfless kindness does not happen every day.

Who is the girl? 

It transpires that the girl was 12-year-old Cibely. She was walking home from school just before the dog was hit by a car on the busy road. Cibely decided to take the dog with her because it was injured. 

Thankfully, the dog's wounds were superficial and it wasn't seriously injured. 

And to make this story even more heartwarming, the dog, now named Pretinha, was adopted by Cibely and her family!
