Donald Trump gives reward to heroic bus driver

A bus driver in the US who stopped to help a woman who looked like she was about to jump off a bridge - has been given a reward by Donald Trump.

The billionaire was so impressed by the actions of Darnell Barton in New York, he handed him a $10,000 dollar gift.

Mr Trump said: "I think he is a great guy with an amazing heart".

On-board CCTV footage shows the driver stopping - giving the woman a hug - and helping her return to the safe side of the barrier.
