VIRAL: Grocery store employee helps teen with autism stock shelves

- A grocery store worker in Louisiana is being praised for his now viral interaction with a teen with autism who wanted to help him with his job.

Sid Edwards captured video of his son, Jack Ryan Edwards stacking shelves with the help of a Rouses Markets store employee named Jordan, earlier this week.

Delaney Edwards Alwosaibi wrote on Facebook that her brother, Jack, became interested in stacking shelves while watching Jordan and the pair worked together for over 30 minutes.

“We all know autism makes going out difficult, and sometimes grocery stores can be a challenge. This young man took the time to slow down and allow Jack Ryan to help for over 30 minutes, guiding him as he finished his task,” Delaney wrote.

In one of the videos, Sid can be heard graciously telling others about Jordan’s actions as the two continue to stack the shelves.

 “I’m watching a miracle in action,” Sid is heard saying in this video clip.

The Facebook post featuring the video has already been shared over 5,000 times on Facebook with many praising Jordan.
