Despite his disability, Hubbard has a full-time job and commutes via public transportation. He refuses to let his blindness stop him from living a happy and healthy life.
To get to and leave from work, Hubbard had memorized routes, schedules, and locations. Things became tough for him when construction was being done at his stop, and it was blocking off the usual path Hubbard takes to cross the street.
Luckily, Turner was there to help him. As soon as Hubbard stood up to leave the bus, Turner turned off the vehicle and got up from the driver seat.
Without second thoughts, he took Hubbard’s arm and ushered him across the street until he safely reached where he needed to go.
The surveillance camera mounted on the Milwaukee County Transit System bus recorded the entire moment and perfectly captured the kind gesture Turner displayed.
Social media users praised Turner for his random act of kindness and urged everybody else to follow his good example.
