One man from Buffalo, New York, is still alive today, likely thanks to a good Samaritan who took him amid a deadly winter storm pummeling the northern state.

Mother-of-three Sha'Kyra Aughtry and her boyfriend saw Joe White calling out for help as he was being "blown up and down the street." The couple took it upon themselves to take the elderly man into their home to tend to his wounds, feed him and give him a warm place to sleep.

In a Facebook Live video posted Christmas Day, Aughtry said, "I've had this man since 6:37 yesterday morning," later adding she believed White was suffering from gangrene and could lose his fingers.

The elderly man's hands were so frozen, Aughtry said she had to use a blow-dryer to warm them enough to remove the bags he had been carrying with him.

As it turns out, it's a good thing Aughtry took White into her home, because it took undoubtedly overwhelmed police officers about nine hours to respond to the good Samaritan's request for help.

"They keep telling me I was on a list, but I don't want to be on no list," she said on Facebook. "This man is not about to die over here!"
