Usually riding a bicycle is not considered dangerous for kids but when they lose control over the brakes, even a harmless ride can turn dangerous. Something similar was captured in a video that has now gone viral across social media.
The video shows a group of men standing and talking near a pavement when one of them notices a young girl on a bicycle coming towards them at a high speed uncontrollably.
Within seconds, one of the guys who is standing with his own bike lunges forward and catches the girl just in the nick of time, thus preventing a serious crash. While the young girl is held safely, her bike crashes to the ground. Both the girl and the man who saved her seem to have sustained a minor injury as they both try to catch their breath.
The undated video, which appears to have been recorded at a CCTV camera, was shared on Twitter by a popular account LADbible (@ladbible) on September 12. So far, it has gathered over two million views.

The fear of being injured or even dying, the relief of being saved at the last minute, and the joy of experiencing first hand the kindness and humanity of a complete stranger. I would’ve broken down in tears.

Looks like the guy got nailed in the knee by the bike, too. Purple Heart.

What a remarkable save. This guy is truly a hero.
She would have hit her head on that cement pole and it could have been bad. Quick thinking and excellent catch. Made my day to see this!
