Some of the videos received a few criticisms of negligence from the dad’s side, but people are still happy that it did not ruin everyone’s day. Some people even shared stories of stranger dads saving their kids from near accidents.
One user said “one hero man saved my daughter on the London underground escalator once when she was 4. I am a single mom and was busy leading us both through the crowd and her shoelace got caught in the escalator. I didn’t notice and he saw it and came from behind and dragged her out. I am so thankful to this complete stranger”.
The conclusion is that dads are awesome!
