In a gripping security footage captured at a car wash in Southern California, a heroic bystander can be seen rescuing a baby in a stroller from rolling onto a busy road. The video depicts a woman tending to something in the rear seat of her car when she notices the stroller slowly making its way toward the bustling traffic.
Despite her best efforts to reach the stroller, she, unfortunately, trips and tumbles to the ground.
She struggles to stand up, but ends up collapsing once more and remains unable to rise.
As the stroller approaches the roadside, a man suddenly emerges from the right side of the camera and sprints towards it, managing to halt its progress just in time. Meanwhile, another man rushes to assist the woman - identified by NBC Los Angeles as the baby boy's great aunt - who had fallen earlier and was struggling to get up. According to reports, she sustained knee injuries during the incident.

The incident occurred at around 3 p.m. PST on a blustery day in Hesperia, with debris visibly blowing in the wind behind the rolling stroller.
Ron Nessman has been identified as the man who stopped the stroller. He is the brother of Donna Gunderson, who recorded and shared the footage from A1 Car Wash.
"I knew I could get it and I got it and I'm thankful for that because I really wouldn't want to see the end result if I wasn't there," Nessman said to the news station.
As he pushed the stroller back up the hill, Nessman gave the woman a comforting hug. His timely intervention was attributed to the fact that he had been attending a job interview at a nearby Applebee's restaurant, fortuitously placing him in the right place at the right time. Incidentally, his sister was seated at a nearby patio at the time of the incident.
Following a period of homelessness lasting around eight years, Ron Nessman has been residing with his sister for the past three months. His homeless status was partly attributed to his struggle with depression after the loss of his girlfriend.
"I decided to get right. If you want something different in your life, you do something different and that's where I am at today. I thank my sister for helping me out. She's always been there for me," Nessman said and also pointed out he's hopeful an employer would see this story.
