69-year-old Gene Hubbard is blind from diabetes, but he has still been going to work unassisted for the last 20 years. He knows exactly how to get to his place of work in Milwaukee, Wisconsin from the bus stop, but when the intersection recently went under construction, he found himself in a tricky spot.

Thankfully, 28-year-old Thaddaus Turner could sense his distress. When the Milwaukee County Transit System bus driver noticed the plethora of orange cones at Hubbard’s stop, he parked the vehicle, followed the man down the step, took his arm, and helped him to maneuver past the road work.

Turner, however, doesn’t think much of the incident, beyond offering credit to his fellow bus drivers for the same kindness that they show their passengers every day.

“The route was barricaded, it was rough for me as a driver, I can only imagine how rough it was for him. I was surprised when I saw it in the news. I didn’t think I would be here right now over something that is second nature to me, and my colleagues.” Turner told CNN.
