Barber Cuts Hair In Street Because Wheelchair Couldn't Get Into Shop

A kindhearted barber has given a disabled man a haircut in the street, because his wheelchair could not access the store.

Victor Burgos was working at the New York barbershop when the phone rang.

It was a man outside the store in a wheelchair, who had been waiting outside the store because he could not enter.

Instead of refusing service to the man because the store was not handicapped accessible, Burgos took his equipment outside and gave him a haircut.

The kind act was caught on camera, unaware to Burgos.

Joe Cocozza, the owner Joe's Upscale Barber Shop, praised his staff member for the "class act".

"He did not have to do this. Vic is one of our busiest barbers and is always busy," he said on Facebook.

Cocozza explained that his building was not able to be fitted with a ramp because of the building's age and design.

"Any older building is not handicap accessible or build to able to do it," he commented.
