This New Yorker Gave A Homeless Man The Shirt Off His Back

Who says New Yorkers aren't nice?

Would you give the shirt off your back to a homeless person? This man did.

23-year-old Joey Resto was riding the subway back home to Brooklyn when he caught sight of the shirtless homeless man a few seats away. Resto told reporters that the temperature was 45 degrees that day and the man was shivering badly.

"He looked cold, hungry...like he had just gotten beat up," Resto told ABC News. He then walked over to the man and gave him the shirt off of his back as well as his hat; Resto says he was so weak that he had to help him put the items on. He also invited him home for a warm meal and to offer him more clothes. Unfortunately, the man fell asleep before they reached their stop, and Resto says he didn't want to disturb him.

After his selfless act was caught on camera, the NYC man is now being hailed a good Samaritan.

"It just came from the heart," Resto said. "I dont know how anyone could have walked past him and had extra clothing and not given it to him."

The Facebook video of the encounter has been viewed over 13 million times and has shared more than 270,000 times since it was posted on Friday.
