An Alabama man’s emotional reaction was caught on camera after his co-workers came together to surprise him with an extraordinary gift.

“He walked over seven miles to work, rain or shine, five days a week,” Allie Steen, a co-worker of Taylor’s, told Global News. She says he’s rarely late for his shift and always works hard, despite his nearly 25-kilometre daily round trip.
