An extraordinary video was captured when Benny Johnson found himself in the right spot at the right time.

Johnson was in New York’s Penn Station when he noticed an elderly man named Ed standing in line for a train. Ed, who is 99-years-young and deaf, was sporting a sign around his neck explaining his handicap, but it was the message on his cap that caught the attention of a young Amtrak train operator.
