Bus driver Darnell Barton is being hailed as a hero for preventing a woman from jumping off a bridge over a Buffalo highway. The 37 year old driver stopped his bus over the Scajaquada Expressway when he saw the women standing on the wrong side of the guardrail.

Later when businessman Donald Trump heard about the incident he responded with a letter stating that Barton deserved to be rewarded. Barton later received a check for $10,000.

Trump wrote: ‘Although I know to you it was just a warm-hearted first response to a dangerous situation… it saved her life.’
