Bus Driver Saves Homeless Man's Life


It was one year ago that an Edmonton bus driver was being applauded for helping a homeless man get out of the icy elements, possibly saving the man's life.


While on his regular route, Derek Bailey, a driver with the Edmonton Transit Service, came upon a man who appeared to be in trouble. Bailey said he saw a man who looked very pale. He was slumped over in a bus shelter.


The man had icicles hanging from his beard.



“The weather outside was about -30 C, -32 C… It was extremely cold that morning,” Bailey said. “Essentially he was frozen.”
