A video of a man jumping off his motorcycle in order to save a baby rolling down a steep road in a walker has gone viral.
The video has been massively shared on all social media platforms. The man noticed the toddler rolling down the steep slope at high speed while still secured to its walker.
Without wasting time, he halts his bike in the middle of the road, throws his bags and runs to catch baby before it could roll further down, and hurt itself.
He managed to save the toddler. Seconds later, a woman—presumably the child’s mother or caregiver—appears running at the scene.
According to news outlet La Chiva, the incident occurred in the Rincon de la Estrella neighbourhood of the city of Florencia, Colombia, on September 14.
On Twitter, one version of the video has garnered over 1.7 million views.
Great reflexes and presence of mind. Truly a hero! Well done👍 https://t.co/Fzra1NN3o7
