Social media users have praised the selfless act of a man who was caught clearing the way for a fire truck during a recent emergency.

In a video posted on TikTok by a firefighter, the man who was riding a motorcycle is seen taking on the role of a traffic policeman for a few minutes to manage traffic.

His quick thinking in ensuring the fire truck could navigate through the congested road during an emergency in Kuala Lumpur earned him praise from firefighters and the public alike.

He helped clear the path and also ensured enough room for the fire truck to pass, despite the narrow road with trucks and buses on both lanes.

Social media users commended the man for his actions, while some shared their experiences in emergencies. They believed such courageous acts were rare, as not everyone would be willing to make such a sacrifice.

"His bravery stands out; among the many people present, he was the only one who dared and willingly took action," commented @anuar.

"Thank you for placing yourself in a position society should see and emulate. God bless you," said @siselun.
