(Newser) – Assuming Donald Trump's tweet is as good as his word, a Buffalo bus driver is about to get a nice reward for rescuing a suicidal woman. Trump tweeted that he intends to give Darnell Barton $10,000 for his actions, reports WIVB-TV. "The bus driver who saved the woman from jumping off the bridge was really cool, great guy," he wrote. "I'm going to send him $10,000-he deserves it!" If you missed the original story, Barton stopped his bus when he spotted a woman who looked ready to jump from a bridge overpass into traffic. He calmly got her off the ledge and stayed with her until help arrived.
