The popular saying “Not all superheroes wear capes” has been floating around for decades. In reality, heroes don’t need to wear capes or have superpowers. They are just everyday people who do extraordinary things with exceptional hearts and attitudes.
Take this man, for example, who became viral online after seemingly saving a baby in a stroller that fell down the train tracks.
The viral video started where the man was on the train tracks because a crib fell off and a woman nearby did not know what to do. Because of his quick actions, the guy managed to get the crib and himself back in the safety platform just in time before the train passed by.
The guy managed to get himself back on the platform just literally a second before the train was there. It was so unbelievable that the video even included a slow-motion of the last few seconds in order to show how just a split second would have been crucial for the guy’s safety.
The anonymous guy earned praises from the netizens for his heroic action. However, some also couldn’t help but be skeptical about the entire incident. Several netizens emphasized that the most rational thing to do in the scenario was to get the stroller and remain on the other side of the railroad until the train passes by completely.
“So great job and all… but am I the only one wondering why he didn’t just take the stroller and take two steps left and hang out on the hill till the train passed then climb up??… why take the chance? Just stand clear then lift the stroller after,” one netizen commented.
Another netizen commented that the whole thing looked staged and even added a link that said the video was indeed not real.
“I found several things odd with this video. First, the carriage is way further out than where it should be if it fell off the edge. Also, cutting the video short as he is missed by the train is odd. There’s no showing the baby and mom or the normal crying and hugging that goes along with these heroics. This video turns out to be faked.
