Hero Saves Baby Stroller From Rolling Onto Busy Highway
You’ve probably seen this video that shows the moment a recently homeless Good Samaritan races in to save a baby in a stroller from rolling into a busy six-lane California highway. Now-viral footage shows a woman reacting in horror as her stroller starts rolling away as she gets out of her car in a parking lot in Hesperia. As she tries to race after it, she trips and slams face-first into the sidewalk — falling again as she tried to get back to her feet, as the stroller rolls in high winds toward the highway. As it appears to be just feet from fast-moving cars, a man dressed all in black runs up from the right and stops it just in time. The hero was later identified as Ron Nessman, who was in the area for a job interview to further help escape several years of homelessness. “I knew I could get it and I got it,” he told a news station.
The woman who lost control of the stroller — the baby’s great-aunt — injured her knees in her falls. “Her knees were bleeding when I got up to her. She was still shocked and she was crying,” Nessman said.
