Today Nikau Munroe Rawiri came forward and was reunited with Cynthia - who was able to properly thank him with some lamingtons and flowers.

Nikau – who turned 20 yesterday - told Seven Sharp that helping people out is in his nature.

“I just saw her doing the lawn and it was hot as outside so I thought I can’t let her continue, so I turned around and took the mower off her pretty much.

“It’s just in my blood to help, I come from a very family orientated place and we help where help is needed.”

Nikau lives with own grandmother and says he never lets her mow the lawn.

He was in hospital after accidentally putting a staple through his finger when he saw the Seven Sharp story on his good deed last night - which brightened his spirits up.
