A homeless man is being hailed a hero after saving a disabled man from thieves who wanted his wheelchair.
Joseph Hall, who lives in a homeless shelter in Birmingham, Alabama, may not be comfortable with the term hero. But for the man he spared from losing his most prized possession, he’s just that.
John “Triston” Stubbs has cerebral palsy and already had been robbed earlier in the night. When He didn’t return to the shelter, Hall went out to look for him and found him in another bad situation. A couple of robbers were trying to steal his wheelchair.
Hall told ABC News: “I was like, you’re not taking his chair, that don’t sit well with my heart.”
Once the thieves left, Hall used all the money he had ― $60 ― to rent a hotel room for the night so Stubbs could sleep safely.

Kindness goes a long way. Pass it on!
