Winnipeg bus driver gives his shoes to man in need,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych]
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,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych].
The Route 24 bus had entered downtown from the Unicity area on Tuesday morning when the male driver pulled over near Portage Avenue and Main Street,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], says passenger Denise Campbell.
"Suddenly the bus driver yelled,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], 'Hey buddy!' and he got off the bus and went up to a man that was basically dressed in fairly warm-looking clothes … he looked like he was in need,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych]," Campbell told CBC News.
"I didn't realize why he was talking to him until all of a sudden, the bus driver took his shoes off,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych]," she recalled.
"I looked down and realized the man had no shoes on,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], and it was really cold this morning."
The temperature in downtown Winnipeg was between 5 and 7 C on Tuesday morning, according to Environment Canada.
Campbell said she and other passengers on the bus were left speechless by the driver's act of kindness.
When another passenger asked the driver why he did what he did, he replied,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], "I couldn't stand seeing someone walking barefoot in this temperature like this," according to Campbell.
"You always hear, 'I'll give you the shirt off my back.' This man took his shoes off,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], gave them to a man that needed them,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], got back on the bus and continued to drive the bus,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych]," she said.
"It's unbelievable,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych]. It's amazing."
Bus driver commended
It's not clear if the man who received the shoes was homeless,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], but the head of a downtown charity that helps the homeless says the bus driver should be recognized for his remarkable generosity.
"There was somebody in need," said Floyd Perras, executive director of Siloam Mission.
"Somebody took the opportunity to make a difference in that person's life and help them move on with their day in a positive way,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych]."
Perras said it's great to see people finding innovative ways to help each other.
"People want to make a difference in this world. To some degree, the only thing they can think of at the time is to give them some clothing or maybe help them get some food,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych]," he said.
