Random Act Of Sport: Heroic Big Brother Catches 11-Month-Old After Falling Off Table

Reactions don’t come much quicker than this

Sure, if you wanted to see conventional sporting definitions of “good hands,” you could look to David Tyree’s “helmet catch” in Super Bowl XLII, a highlight video of point guard Jason “White Chocolate” Williams, or this legendary line drive snag by the late José Fernández.

But if you wanted to see an application that’s both more practical AND more dramatic, you’ll probably want to check out this nanny cam footage of a 9-year-old boy saving his 11-month-old brother from a very scary fall off of a changing table:


In addition to having some quick hands, older brother Joseph made an impressive lunge to get to where he needed to be—without a second to spare. That oblivious sheepdog certainly didn’t make the task any easier for him, obstructing the path of rescue to baby bro Eitan.

The mother, Tila, said the incident occurred last month, but she was initially too embarrassed to share the video. She’s a mother of five and felt guilt that her attention was directed elsewhere at that crucial moment. But now she’s comfortable sharing it, saying she feels it was a miracle that her Joseph was able to react as quickly and effectively as he did.

Speaking to TV network WSVN (via KXXV-TV), Joseph said he can’t really account for what happened in that instant. He says:

“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.”

I’m pretty sure this play will hold its own against anything we’ll ever see on the field of play.

Last Friday, GOOD reported on an infuriating incident that went down at a Massachusetts Target.

A Target manager who's come to be known as "Target Tori," was harassed by Twitter troll David Leavitt for not selling him an $89 Oral-B Pro 5000 toothbrush for a penny.

He describes himself as a "multimedia journalist who has worked for CBS, AXS, Yahoo, and others."

Anyone who has ever worked in retail knows that the worst thing about the job, right after the pay, are the unreasonable cheapskates who "want to talk to your manager" to get some money off an item.

They think that throwing a tantrum will save them a few bucks and don't care if they completely embarrass themselves in the process. Sometimes that involves belittling the poor employee who's just trying to get through their day with an ounce of dignity.

Twitter is rallying around a gal named Tori who works at a Target in Massachusetts after she was tweet-shamed by irate chapekate, journalist, and Twitter troll, David Leavitt.

In a typical work day, people who smoke take more breaks than those who do not. Every few hours they pop outside to have a smoke and usually take a coworker with them.

Don Bryden, Managing director at KCJ Training and Employment Solutions in Swindon, England, thinks that nonsmokers and smokers should be treated equally, so he's giving those who refrain from smoking four extra days to compensate.

Funny enough, Bryden is a smoker himself.
