Two 10-year-old boys in Karatsu, Saga Prefecture, have received certificates of appreciation from the police after they helped a woman in her 90s who was lost.

The two boys, Soma Sekiguchi and Ryo Kuramitsu, came across the woman who could not find her way home on a street at around 2:40 p.m. on Feb 2, Fuji TV reported. They took her by the hand to a nearby koban (police box).
