A Heroic Homeless Person Prevents a Baby From Rolling Into Traffic
A man caught an out-of-control stroller just in time. An agonizing video showed a woman tripping and falling with the stroller rolling toward traffic. But luckily, a good samaritan jumped into action and saved the child.
A heart-stopping video was captured of a man who caught an out-of-control stroller with a baby inside just before it almost rolled onto a 4-lane highway. The stroller had been pushed by a woman who tripped and fell.
Ron Nessman was sitting on a bench at a nearby carwash when he noticed strong winds propelling a baby stroller toward a highway. He had experienced homelessness for 8 years.
Later, he said, “I didn’t have time to even think about it. You just react.”
Fortunately, superheroes like Nessman can be found throughout our history. In the nineteenth century, Ida Lewis, a lighthouse keeper, saved several lives. When she was just 12, she saved 4 men after their boat capsized in the water. And a few years later, she rescued 2 more men at sea after their boat overturned. She was the first woman ever to receive the Gold Lifesaving Medal.
