A terrifying video captured the moment a man saved a baby in a stroller from rolling straight into speeding traffic in Hesperia. Security video shows a woman unloading items from the backseat of her SUV parked outside of the Bear Valley Hand Car Wash on Monday around 3:30 p.m. A stroller with a baby inside was placed outside near the vehicle. As she’s rummaging through the car, the stroller suddenly starts to roll backward. When the woman notices, she runs toward the stroller, but trips and falls down. She gets up again, only to fall down once more. Just as the stroller is moments away from hitting traffic, a good Samaritan suddenly dashes in from the side and grabs the stroller. He pushes the baby back up the driveway as another person helps the fallen woman stand up. When he reaches the woman, he gives her a hug. In the video, Nessman can be seen grabbing the stroller just before in entered traffic. “And I said, I got it! You know what I mean. I seen her and I felt so bad for the lady you know,” he said. “I couldn't imagine. I got nephews and nieces and I couldn't imagine something like that." The former truck driver said he ended up homeless after the death of his girlfriend and had only recently moved to the area to reconnect with his family. In fact, he had just finished a job interview when he stepped into the role of hero.
“I wouldn't be able to live with myself if I did nothing,” he said. “I'm just glad I realized it and was on it."
He said he hopes this help remind parents to make sure they always lock the wheels on their stroller.
Mr. Nessman doesn't want praise...he wants a second chance after being homeless.
