A home security camera captured the dramatic moment a garbage truck worker saved a child’s life.
The incident happened in Rolândia, Brazil on August 28. According to local news, the dojo across the street from the family’s home belongs to the boy’s grandfather.
The grandfather had left to open the dojo and accidentally left the gate opened. The boy, Lucas, had gone outside after his grandfather.
Security camera footage shows Lucas stepping out onto the street as a garbage truck passed by. When Lucas was about to cross the street, the garbage truck employee pulled the child by the shirt, preventing him from being run over by another car.
After the video went viral, Lucas’s family met his “guardian angel”.
