A fast-acting Seattle garbage-truck driver saved a runaway stroller from a busy intersection on Thursday.
Jeff Blackburn's heroic rescue was captured on camera.
Blackburn had been driving his CleanScapes truck along his usual route when he saw a mother jogging with a stroller. The woman turned the stroller sideways, likely assuming she had "parked and locked" it, at the top of a hill before momentarily leaving it to greet a group of women around the corner.
"She was on a hill and almost immediately when she turned the corner the stroller started to turn and roll down the hill," Blackburn told KOMO News. "So I started honking the horn and speeding up so I could catch up to it before it got to the intersection, because at the bottom of the hill was a busy intersection with stop signs."
