Watch As This Good Samaritan Literally Gives The Shirt Off His Back To A Homeless Man

Joey Resto’s mom must be so proud. The 23 year old Brooklyn native is receiving high praise after a video captured him giving the shirt off his back to a homeless man he saw shirtless and shivering from the cold on the subway.

Joey was taking the ‘A’ train home from work to Brooklyn last Friday when he noticed an older, homeless man sitting shirtless and shivering on the train. He told ABC News that the sight shocked him and that “He looked cold, hungry…like he had just gotten beat up.” Resto then did what he ‘thought was right’ and took his own shirt off to give to the man.

Resto had to help the man put the shirt on because he seemed unable to do so himself. “He looked so weak and frail,” Resto told ABC-owned station WABC in New York. “I had to help him, or he would not put it on.”

Resto also offered the man to come home with him for a hot meal, warm clothes and coffee, but the man fell asleep before the stop. He tried to wake him but “didn’t want to disturb” him. Resto told the news station that there was no question that he would help the man, saying “It just came from the heart,” Resto said. “I don’t know how anyone could have walked past him and had extra clothing and not given it to him.”
