Hamilton, Ontario: Student Praised for Holding Hands with Disabled Stranger on Bus

A student has been hailed as an “inspiration” after he held hands and comforted a stranger with disabilities on a bus in Canada.


Godfrey Cuotto, a 21-year-old student in Hamilton, Ontario, was making his way home from a shift at a burrito restaurant when a man, only known as Robert, approached him on a packed bus.

Robert, whose family later revealed that he has cerebral palsy and is deaf, asked Mr Cuotto to shake his hand.

Initially, Mr Cuotto feared that he was being pranked, but soon realised Robert “just needed comfort,” he told Huffington Post Canada.
