Watch This Guy Use His Impressive Dad Reflexes to Protect Daughter
What could've been a messy stumble turned into a superhuman catch.
Not all superheroes wear capes. Some wear cargo shorts and beanies, and possess superhuman abilities to stop toddlers from toppling over.
That’s the only explanation for this dad, who managed to catch his daughter from falling over a bridge without even looking at her. His lightning-fast response proves that you don’t need to be bit by a radioactive spider to develop your own Spidey Senses, you just have to be a dad.
“We went on vacation to Yosemite in the summer of 2016. We thought we were going to pose for a daddy/daughter photo but turned into a memorable video,” the dad-turned-viral-hero says about the clip. “Wife accidentally had it on video mode. It was a scary moment, but as you can see we were able to laugh afterwards. We are thankful for each other and our lack of injuries.”
Check out the video below, and stick around for the slow-mo replay that really shows off the full insanity of the guy’s reach-out.
Crisis averted, but those parents probably won’t want to tempt fate again. Still, it’s great to see that even the daughter walks off the stumble with a smile.
