Offbeat Video

By Randal Coombs


This kind-hearted stranger spotted a homeless man in need outside a store – so decided to selflessly offer him a sweater.

Saul Espana, 20, was completely unaware he was being filmed by his sister when he got out of his car in Oakland, California, in order to offer a homeless man his sweater earlier this month.

He had been visiting family when he felt thirsty and spotted the rough sleeper while heading into a shop to get some water.

Disappointed in how nobody else was willing to help the man on a cold and windy day, Saul offered the man a sweater out of the kindness of his heart.

Saul said: ‘I’ve lost weight so I’ve been selling all my bigger apparel.

“I have been selling a lot of my clothes to thrifts shops but I disregarded the money and just gave him the sweater out of generosity.

“I felt the energy. He was speechless that I had helped him.”
