This heart-stopping video captured by surveillance cameras shows a father and daughter crossing a street when a red car comes barreling toward them. Despite the clearly marked crosswalk, this driver made no effort to stop.
Watch as Michael Devore steps into the driver’s path and pushes his daughter out of harm’s way, taking the hit instead. “My main objective was to push her out of the way and if I had to take the hit I had to take the hit,” Devore said.
The hero dad suffered multiple fractures to both of his legs, but it was a mission accomplished because his 11-year-old daughter was saved.
This is such an important reminder to SLOW DOWN, and watch for pedestrians! Pay attention to your surroundings when you're behind the wheel!
