A runner reportedly collapsed short of the Boston Marathon finish line on Monday — but that wasn’t the end of the marathon for him.

Rather than pass him by, four runners actually picked him up and carried him all the way to the finish line. The moving act was captured in a photo and tweeted by TheFix’s Wesley Lowery on Monday.

The man reportedly fell down around the 26 mile mark, near where the first explosion went off in the horrific Boston Marathon bombing in 2013.

This is America, ladies and gentlemen.
