Home Depot employee catches falling baby in the nick of time

Posted: Updated:
ANCHORAGE, AK - An Anchorage man is being hailed a hero across the country for what was caught on surveillance video inside a Home Depot.

It appears some parents left their child in a car seat on top of a shopping cart.  It tipped over sending infant tumbling towards the ground.  That's when a Home Depot employee catches the baby midair.

Now, The Home Depot is presenting that employee with an award for an exceptional act of heroism.

 “It really speaks to his heart,” said Brady Wilson, Home Depot Manager.  “He's a great associate. He was obviously in the right place at the right time.”

The baby was not hurt and the employee says he was just doing his job.
