Several people took to the streets of Hong Kong recently to oppose a controversial extradition bill. Over 2 million Hong Kong-ers unified on Sunday for their peaceful protest.
A video of the protest has since then, gone viral. In the video, the protesters can be seen quickly disbanding and paving way for an ambulance to pass by.

The viral video showed an ambulance passing through a gigantic crowd of protesters. This massive crowd all covered in black clothes, peacefully and without prior instructions made way for the emergency vehicle. This ambulance was called for a person who fainted during the protest.
The internet clearly lauded the gesture.
