A fast-food worker in North Carolina came to a young girl's rescue after she was stood up for the prom.

18-year-old Bryan Hayes was working the evening shift at a hamburger joint when a freshman girl named Kelsey Baker, walked in wearing a yellow prom dress and was in tears.

When he found out that a senior had stood her up on prom night, he had a customer to put on some music and asked the heartbroken girl to dance with him, in front of everyone.

He posted the photo of him with the girl.
