KUALA LUMPUR: A simple act of kindness from a fellow passenger drew commendations from netizens.
In a TikTok post shared by the user @bryanlowwww, an unidentified woman can be seen using a fan to cool down a two-month-old infant during sweltering conditions on the train.
"It's hot here on the train and there is a two-month-old baby.
"(And) this Malay auntie did not hesitate to help to fan the baby. This is our country," read the caption accompanying the video.
However, the video did not specify whether the elevated temperature inside the train resulted from a malfunctioning air-conditioner or simply the weather being exceptionally warm.
Appreciative comments flooded the section below, applauding the auntie's compassionate act. User @selestina_visva shared, " I was in this train too and I saw this beautiful scene too. This is Malaysia! That's what I felt when I saw it." Another user, @ayahtua3, commented, " We should have the Malaysian spirit".
Several users also said that Malaysians stand united irrespective of their ethnic backgrounds. One user, @zalinaomar61, pointed out, " However, it is the politics that divided them".
