Passers-by help traveller with LEGO disaster at Euston Station

When a train passenger had a LEGO disaster at Euston Station, London, passers-by stopped to help.

Last week, a passenger had an unfortunate accident at Euston Station in London, UK, when her newly purchased LEGO box burst all over the station floor. The 3,200 pieces were cascading everywhere, so fellow travellers stopped to help her gather up the elements and put them back in the box.

Journalist Rob McGibbon shared the moment on Twitter, Yahoo reports:

Teamwork. The great moment a woman accidentally tore open the 3,200-piece box of LEGO she’d just bought for her daughter’s birthday…Many hands helped build it back at Euston Station.

The video shows other people stopping to help collect up the pieces for the unlucky gift-giver, who was aiming to get the set home as a present for her daughter. It is a nice demonstration of people supporting one another when something goes wrong.
