Home Depot employee catches baby falling from cart

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), falls are the leading cause of non-fatal injuries for all children, and almost 2.8 million children are treated in U.S. emergency rooms for fall-related injuries each year.

If it hadn’t been for the quick reflexes of a Home Depot employee, a baby’s fall from a shopping cart could have ended in tragedy.

As reported by 11 Alive News, the heroic catch was caught on the security camera at a Home Depot in Anchorage Alaska.

The footage shows employee Chris Strickland walking by the cart as the seat overturns and the baby starts to fall.

Like clockwork, Strickland swiftly turns around and scoops the child up—saving it from hitting the store's cement floor.

The store plans on honoring Strickland with the chain’s Angel Award which is given for exceptional acts of heroism.

It is not clear as to why the child was not buckled in or the whereabouts of the child’s mother as the incident unfolded.
