Not all heroes wear capes, and a man named Ron Nessman is the perfect proof of that.
This man has been homeless for several years before he finally found a place to call home when he moved in with his sister Donna just recently. Having started his life over, the next step was finding a job. So, Ron went to a job interview one day, but little did he know that it would be the day when a deed he made would turn him into a real-life hero.
Ron’s act was caught on what many dubbed a heart-stopping video showing a stroller with a baby inside rolling towards a busy highway in Hesperia, California.
As the stroller starts rolling, the baby’s minder, which was later reported was its great-aunt, falls on the ground and is unable to stand on her feet in order to catch the stroller.
Ron found himself in the right place at the right time and witnessed the entire thing. He was then forced to make a split-second decision when he noticed the stroller and he simply ran towards it as fast as he could.
“I knew I could get it and I got it,” Ron told KTLA. “And I’m thankful for that because I really wouldn’t want to see the end result if I wasn’t there.”
Ron then expressed sympathy for the woman who was taking care of the baby and said she did all in her power to catch the stroller.
“She tried everything she possibly could to get up,” he said. “Her knees were bleeding when I got up to her she was still shocked and she was crying.”
As of the rescue, he said, “I noticed the stroller was going towards the traffic and I instinctively ran towards the stroller and dived before it went into the traffic and there was a child inside the stroller.
“I was thankful I was at the right place at the right time.”
You can take a look at the rescue video below.
We are so glad Ron was on hand to prevent what would undoubtedly have been a true tragedy.
