A security guard has been applauded for his heroism after he saved a baby who almost fell on the escalator stairs at a mall in Cameroon.
A CCTV footage capturing the heroic moment the security man rescued the baby in the nick of time is currently trending on social media.
In the video, a woman is seen carrying the baby on her neck as she got on the escalator. She seemingly missed her step and the baby fell backwards while she struggled to find her balance on the escalator.
Thankfully, the security man ran with speed to catch the baby before she could fall on the moving stairs and possibly sustain a serious injury.
The security official has been praised on social media for his sharp instinct and heroism while the woman was reprimanded for carrying the baby haphazardly on an escalator.
