As anyone who's witnessed an Alberta hail storm knows, you'd have to be awfully brave to face the elements without wearing some heavy-duty protective wear.

But this kind Calgary man found the most heartwarming reason to do so, running out into a fierce storm Tuesday, wearing nothing more than a t-shirt and jeans.

Imgur user redpyl spotted the man from a distance, in the middle of a hail stone-covered road downtown.

When he got a bit closer to investigate, he saw the man holding something wrapped in a yellow towel.
