As the globe learned from the Cannes Palme d’Or winning feature film Look Who’s Talking Too, babies can sometimes be unpredictable creatures. That’s why it helps to have a heroic older sibling on the scene in case non-diapered sh*t goes down.
Durable newsmagazine Inside Edition has some frightening video of an incident where a quick thinking kid dove to the rescue of his baby brother as he tumbles off of a changing table. The clip, which has racked up over 800,000 views in 21 hours, is the sort of thing that will give new parents nightmares and double as a de facto PSA for infant safety.
“I was just getting everyone ready for bed. I was home alone with the five kids, and at first I said, ‘I messed up. I did something wrong,’” said Tila, “but then I realized that, really, it was a miracle. I must have done something right to have been deserving of this little guy, running in at the right time and catching him at the right moment.”
Her son, 9-year-old Joseph Levi, also believes there was something special at work to allow him to rescue his 11-month-old brother.
“I would have never caught him, and I can’t run that fast, so I felt like something came and just pushed me forward, and when that happened, I just ran and caught him,” said Joseph. “I would never be able to do that again because I can’t carry my brother”
Here’s hoping the next time the Levis are on Inside Edition, it’s for some of the program’s lighter fare involving donkeys wearing funny hats or rapping grandma bounty hunters.
