Firemen use truck to stop traffic and help elderly woman cross road

This is the heartwarming moment firemen stopped their truck to block traffic and help an elderly woman cross the road in Russia.

Footage taken on November 18 shows the struggling pensioner stranded in the middle of a busy highway, waiting for the traffic to clear in Kaliningrad province, Russia.

A fire engine then drove across the lanes to block oncoming traffic as the lady, who appeared to be using two walking sticks, shuffled towards safety.

Several men also went down from the vehicle to assist her, and left to drive away when she made it to the sidewalk.
