On a cold night in Wisconsin, a Milwaukee County Transit System bus driver extended an act of compassion to a homeless man — and it was all caught on camera.

Natalie Barnes was driving her usual route when a man named Richard got on and told her that he had just lost his home.
"Well, I'm on this bus 'til 2:44," Barnes can be heard saying. "You want to stay with me then?"
For hours, Richard sat quietly in the first row. When it was time for Natalie's break, the two spent some time talking. Then she bought him dinner.
"I don't know what to say, but to say thank you," he told her upon returning with bags of food. "I'll give it back to you."
Since that chilly night in October, Barnes says she and Richard have developed a great friendship.
"Richard has become a friend of mine," she said, breaking into a huge smile. "We talk every couple of days. And he thanks me every time he talks to me for helping him. He calls me his little guardian angel, so I'm happy to say that he's progressing well."
