Mystery Man's Random Act Of Kindness Reduces New York Subway Flower Seller To Tears

City-dwellers - especially New Yorkers - are not renowned for their selfless generosity.

Which is why, perhaps, the person who uploaded this video called it 'Miracle on 6 train'.

The 6 train runs between the Bronx and Brooklyn Bridge - and on this particular day, something rather lovely happened on it.

A young man offered a flower seller $140 for her entire wares - dozens of roses, of all colours - and as he handed his money over, told her: "You've got to do me a favour. You've got to give them out... give them out to everybody. Don't sell any of them. Give them all away."

The man's humanity - this random act of kindness - immediately moved the flower seller to tears. "Anybody who wants a rose, you can come and get one," she finally told the people in the carriage.
