A baby in a runaway stroller was saved by a quick thinking garbage truck driver.
Jeff Blackburn was behind the wheel of his Seattle garbage truck when he saw the infant’s mother lose control of the stroller on a steep city street.
“Almost immediately when she turned the corner the stroller started to turn and roll down the hill,” Blackburn said.
Blackburn started honking his horn and sped up to catch the stroller.
“Luckily when I was honking the horn a Fedex truck was going through the intersection and stopped because he heard the horn honking,” Blackburn said.
He parked his truck in the middle of the road to block traffic and ran toward the runaway baby boy, who was smiling when Blackburn finally caught up with him.
The panicked mother was relieved and walked away with her son, who was unharmed.
Blackburn is being hailed as a hero, but insists he was “just in the right place at the right time.”
