A Boy Who Saved 17 Lives Gets a Big Surprise

103445 ratings | 5781836 views
In partnership with the film Wonder, SoulPancake surprises 13-year-old hero, Virgil Smith, who trudged into the Hurricane Harvey flood waters with an air mattress to transport his stranded neighbors to safety. We’d say that deserves a Standing Ovation! As a thank you to Virgil for choosing kindness, he was awarded an Auggie Award! This was a scholarship to help with school, and a donation to the Harvey relief efforts made in his name. #ChooseKind Special thanks to Lionsgate, Participant Media, and Walden Films. See "Wonder" in theaters November 17. We love to connect with YOU, no matter what language you speak.

What a WONDERFUL Young Man 👍👍

Ok I’m going to get a load of hate but this guy saves 17 people. And his reward is a round of applause? I know he’s humble but give him a medal or something. Or put him in wonder.

If anyone says anything bad about black people (no offence) I'll show them this video😄

Another kid got in a boat to go steal PlayStation from a neighbor. Then everyone piled in his boat instead, when he got there, and they now call him a hero.

I don't get it... Why would someone thumdown this? Probably selfish people who don't like others getting fame. Toughen up this kid did an amazing job. Plus I doubt any of you haters could do that or have the courage to do. This kid risked his life to save others.

This HERO did not wear a mask , cape or suit. He went did something not most people can do in this world and that me means something. But in my eyes he is the definition of a Hero. 😇

Made me cry Also a story of my own when my great grandpa died in December 7, 2017 I was 11 still am as of now, anyway a couple days before he died I had asked him to pray with me, after he closed his eyes for a minute and I was still standing there and he opened his eyes and he said " how long have you been standing there and I said I have been standing here for 2-3 minutes and he said oh I'm sorry thank you for being patient , I forgot you were there and when I had the go to my house witch is by the way same property different house ,before I went he said I think god has blessed you with a big, loving heart and that made my eyes water .because he has always talked to me about god and that many people have been blessed with a big, loving heart and he thinks I am one of them its really heart warming . Also : I'M NOT WHATSOEVER SAYING THIS TO GET PEOPLE TO PITY ME. Thank you if you read through this without taking it the wrong way😊
