A Winnipeg Transit bus driver is being hailed a Good Samaritan after stunned passengers watched him give the shoes off his feet to a man who was walking barefoot on the sidewalk.
The temperature in the Canadian city was between 5-7 Celsius on Tuesday morning (around 40 degrees) when the driver stopped the bus in order to question the man.
When another passenger asked the driver why he did what he did, he replied, "I couldn't stand seeing someone walking barefoot in this temperature like this," according to a witness.
