VIRAL VIDEO: Home Depot employee catches falling baby
ANCHORAGE, Alaska — A Home Depot employee made a lunging catch to save a baby as the child tumbled headfirst out of a shopping cart, a viral internet video shows.
The worker, identified by the Alaska Dispatch as Chris Strickland, can be seen standing nearby just before a baby carrier tips from its spot on the handles of the cart. Strickland can be seen dashing to the rescue and snatching a pink-clad baby before it can hit the ground.
The incident reportedly happened on Jan. 8.
Strickland declined a request to speak with Alaska Dispatch, but did verify that the video was of him.
