A simple act of kindness by one Starbucks employee is quickly going viral in the wake of the bombing investigations in New York and New Jersey.

The barista was caught on camera taking time to bring coffee and pastries to first responders on Sunday who were at the scene of the explosion in Manhattan's Chelsea neighborhood.

The treats brought a much-needed break to the police officers and firefighters who had been hard at work for hours.

A student-run news team from the University of Central Florida captured the moment, which has been viewed more than nine million times on Facebook.

The employee says he hopes his simple act will inspire others to bring more positivity to their every day lives.
