This video clip was posted on Twitter by a user.

The Twitter user,named Antonella, told the local media that she was in an Uber and stopped at a red light on Church Street near Dey Street, when she witnessed the touching moment.

“I watched the old jogger talking to the vagrant man and then taking off his shoes and his sock,” at first she thought the runner had some cash in his sock that he wanted to donate but soon she realised that he took off both shoes and socks and left them with the man and started to walk away barefoot.

“I really hope to find this guy’s identity out and meet him in person,” said  Antonella.
