Although most people would like to think that they have empathy for others, it's rare to see acts of compassion actually take place in public.

When they actually happen, they are sometimes small favours or acts of solidarity.

The video was posted on Twitter by Kevin W of America Out Loudand has already been viewed more than 6 million times.

The man in the video has since been identified as comedian Carlos Davis, who also shared the video on his Twitter account.

As the clip has gone viral people have been loving the kindness and generosity of the men.
