Donald Trump has offered $10,000 to a city bus driver in Buffalo, N.Y., for stopping to coax a suicidal woman off the ledge of a busy overpass.
A New York City bus driver went above and beyond the call of duty earlier this month when he came across a troubled woman standing on an overpass and decided to stop his bus full of passengers to help her.
"People were passing by and just passing by," he said. "She's hanging over the side of a bridge and they're acting like there's nothing even happening. And, he stopped his bus and went out and went into action. And, you know, the softness of his voice and the beauty of his action actually convinced the young lady to step away from danger, so I thought he did a fantastic job."
