This man in a Santa outfit became a hero when a lady tripped on the ice

This is the most heartwarming thing you'll see today!

It's a busy time of year for Santa Claus, but it seems Father Christmas always has time to do a good deed.

An expert at overcoming wintry conditions, the mysterious man in the red suit was filmed skidding to a halt in his car (presumably his sleigh is undergoing last-minute preparations for his Christmas Eve night-shift) to help a woman who had slipped and fallen flat on her back on some ice outside a supermarket in Watford. 

Her bags flew through the air, but no task is too much for Santa: he helped her pack up her shopping and popped her hat back on her head.

Thankfully, the Christmas miracle was all caught on camera by Dave Cordoza, who posted the dashcam footage on Facebook saying: ‘This Santa dude just f***ing leaps from the car to save this woman who falls on the ice… I love his lil drift there too haha. Santa is badass.’

No matter what age you are, there's no doubt Santa is still a hero!
