When was the last time a complete stranger offered to help you?
Last Saturday, while we was on the road my brother's car started overheating. He pulled the car over to the side of the road and then got off to check what the problem was. He opened the bonnet up to examine the engine. It seemed he found out that the coolant reservoir tank wasn't filled to the proper level. He topped it up, closed the cap, and then closed the bonnet. The moment he was getting into the car, another car stopped right next to ours. The following conversation took place between my brother and the stranger in that car. 
ــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــــ
S: Peace be upon you.
B: And peace be upon you.
S: Do you need any help?
B: May Allah bless you. (By hearing this, He understood that everything was fine.)
S: May God help you.
B: May Allah have mercy on your parents. (He then continued driving.)

It's always a heartening thing to meet people who are willing to give a hand to others when needed just for the sake of help. =]

Thank you

It happened as a reward of ALLAH for your kindness and will to help others probably, I can't remember such a thing but I believe that being in service of people is something great and a privilege from ALLAH to be compensated with others assistance within your difficulty.

It is always nice to see there are helpful people on the roads.

You get off a bus or a train but you get out of a car.

I would say "Just as he was getting back into the car...."

Safe travelling, Suade.

I don't remember any such incidents happened to me recently but I have noticed people offering their help to others if they found them in any such situation like the one you experienced. 

One thing I found interesting in the conversation you have mentioned i.e., the response to "Do you need any help?". I might get confused:) Thanks for making it clear.

Helpful people are everywhere:)

You're right, ସୁଦୀପ. There are always people who like helping others and they expect nothing in return.
