Ever have one of those moments play out that feels like an actual nightmare come to life? Hopefully few and far in between. For one babysitter and great-aunt, that’s exactly what happened in the blink of an eye. She looked away one second and the stroller with the baby boy started rolling toward traffic. And then a worst case scenario as she tried running after him… She fell to the ground.
They were at the car wash and she was getting ready to put the little boy back in the car when a strong gust of wind got his stroller moving. The woman panicked and fell to the ground, and it was too late by the time she gathered herself. Thankfully, a hero from nearby came running to save the day!
The mystery man seems to appear out of nowhere to stop the strolling from rolling into traffic at the last possible second. And another man shows up to help pick the woman up to her feet. This video has been circulating online recently, but I bet you haven’t heard this hero’s story…
It turns out good Samaritan Ron Nessman is rebounding from homelessness and was coming from a job interview at a nearby Applebee’s restaurant. The right place at the right time, and it’s all because he’s on the road to bettering himself. Amazing!
The woman was understandably shaken and in disbelief at what just happened, but it all worked out in the end! Some lessons were learned on this day, and Mr. Nessman deserves everything he’s currently working for in life. I hope he gets that job at the very least! 🙂 See the close call in the video below:
