Superhero Dad Saves Children From An Out Of Control Car In The Most Heroic Way

As if coming out of an action movie with great superpowers, a bike mechanic saved his two children from being hit by a car with his incredible agility. A surveillance camera captured how the man took the children from the path of the fast vehicle, rolling backwards and bringing them to safety in a split second.

Initially, the man was facing away from his children as he worked but as the children walked across the pavement, the man suddenly turned his head to look at them.


In a split second, he got up, ran towards his children, grabbed them to his arms and rolled backwards. Just as he got a hold of his children, a car is seen driving by at high speeds, missing them by inches. The blue car then crashed into the garage. The social media post, which has been shared for more than 10,000 times, does not suggest where or when the incident happened. However, web users suggested that it had been filmed in Indonesia. The claim was supported by a report on Jambi Tribune.
