Most dads seem to have incredible instincts for when their children are in danger. Somehow, fathers can just sense when something bad is about to happen, and they can jump into action before anyone else even realizes something is wrong. A viral video shows a dad saving his daughter from falling off of a bed, when he had been sleeping and completely unaware just seconds before.
The 20-second video features the adorable baby Madison. The video, which was filmed by Madison’s mother, begins with the baby bouncing around the bed while her father sleeps with his head buried under the pillows.
Madison stands up on the bed, and with a big smile on her face, she reaches her arms up into the air. Then, she topples backward and begins to roll head-first over the edge of the bed. Before she falls, her dad suddenly reaches out and grabs her ankle, saving her.
Without her dad’s amazing instincts, Madison could have been seriously hurt from the fall. Luckily, he woke up at the right time and realized what was about to happen. Since the video was posted, it has been viewed almost 300,000 times. Hundreds of people have shared the video and commented with their stories about parental instincts. When it comes to their children, parents seem to have a sixth sense and amazingly fast reflexes.
