Watch: Train passenger gives shivering homeless man his t-shirt

The video has since gone viral.

A VIDEO SHOWING a man taking off his t-shirt on the New York subway and giving it to a shivering homeless man has gone viral since it was filmed on Friday.

The video, which was shot by a passenger on the train, shows the helpful stranger putting the t-shirt and a hat on the man, who was sitting alone.

The man who shot the video, Lazaro Nolasco, told New York Daily News that the homeless man looked ‘sick’ and wasn’t wearing a shirt on the Brooklyn-bound train.

It was around 10pm, and temperatures were near freezing, the newspaper reports. The good Samaritan, only known as Jay, asked the man if he needed to go to hospital – but Nolasco doesn’t know what happened next.

Since Nolasco put the video on Facebook, it has attracted over 6 million views.
