Upon seeing a homeless man walking on the freeway without shoes, members of the Riverside Fire Department leapt into action to help the guy out.  

Firefighter David Gilstrap and Capain Rob Gabler were returning from a training when they noticed a man limping slowly across a the Columbia freeway overpass barefoot.

They pulled over and Gilstrap, who had a pair of tennis shoes on the truck, gave the man his shoes.  He even helped put the shoes on the man and offered him some water.

The department shared the post on Facebook – where it has garnered over 1,200 likes (as of this posting).
