If you're looking for a way to warm up in this cold winter weather, this video will warm your heart. Many people are praising a Toronto man for his act of kindness after he started shoveling snow off the roads himself because cars were stuck due to the city's massive snowstorm. His good deed was captured on video, and the footage has now gone viral. This Toronto man has become an internet hero.
It all started when cars were stuck on Don Mills Road during Monday's massive snowstorm. From the video footage, it appears that cars got stuck going up the hill just north of York Mills. This led a Toronto man to brave the cold and go out onto the road to shovel the snow himself so that cars would be able to drive again.
Check out the video of the Toronto man shovelling snow off the roads that was posted on YouTube below. Not all heroes wear capes.
The YouTube video description read, "This is on don mills road just north of york mills it's crazy out here !!! Do not go up this hill if your tires are bad". In the video, you can hear his son, who is filming, say, "That's my dad! Good Samaritan in the city, shoveling Don Mills Road in the 2019 snow storm".
In the video, you can see the man shovelling with all his might, all by himself, while tons of cars are stuck going up the hill and a line of several cars have formed.
It looks like his good deeds inspired others as well. Later on in the video, more people are seen walking on the road towards him, presumably to help. "Oh look, we got a band of shovelers to join my dad," says the son who's filming the video. "One Good Samaritan brings many good samaritans".
Many people are praising the Toronto man's kind actions.
On a side note, people can't get enough of the son who filmed the video's distinctly Toronto accent. His accent deserves a reward on its own.
Southern Ontario is expected to be in for even more deep freezes until the middle of March. In the midst of all the chaos, it's heartwarming to see Torontonians taking the time to help each other out.
