‘An Angel’: Bus Driver’s Reaction When She Sees Blind Man on the Street Goes Viral For All the Right Reasons By Billy Hallowell for Faith Wire
A Florida bus driver has gone viral for all the right reasons.
Miami-Dade County driver Ciji Crawford said she didn’t think twice about her recent decision to stop, get off her bus, and help a blind man walk across the street — but that simple act has touched many.
“When my job called me and told me, ‘Hey, you went viral,’ I’m like, ‘What?’” Crawford told WTVJ-TV. “I didn’t even think about the incident because it was something that, you know, was natural to me.”
In fact, she didn’t even know she was being recorded. But a driver saw the moment and captured it on camera; the video has since gone viral, inspiring people across the internet, to Crawford’s surprise.
Crawford, motivated by mere kindness, said she jumped into action after seeing the blind man and realizing he needed help getting across the street.
So, she asked her bus passengers if she could take a moment to help — and they all agreed.
Crawford told WTVJ-TV she would want someone to do the same for her and that it “was the right thing to do.” The man in the video was initially apprehensive but ended up accepting help and was grateful.
