Bus driver Mike Blair is always aware of his surroundings and the people who take the bus daily. When he saw a 92-year-old man alone at the bus stop, Mike was alarmed.
The weather that day was at least 110 degrees. When Mike pulled the bus to its next stop, the 92-year-old caught his attention. Everyone got on the bus except for the old man. Then Mike got up from his seat.
The man’s appearance was not good.
Mike gently grabbed him, seated him in the first empty seat, and soon realized that he had to act fast. Heat stroke in an elderly person can have serious consequences.
The first thing Mike could think of was his water bottle which he had packed in his lunchbox. He grabbed his bag, grabbed the water, and helped the gentleman sip some much-needed water.
Mike was so busy helping the withered man that he had no idea another passenger had taken a picture of Mike’s good deed! The photo was posted on Twitter and has since gone viral!
