Dramatic surveillance video taken at a Home Depot in Anchorage, AK is going viral.
Thousands are clicking to see why 19-year-old Christopher Strickland is being called a hero across the country.
Strickland, an employee at Home Depot, glances over and sees a baby seat begin fall sideways out of a shopping cart.
Surveillance video shows Strickland dashing forward as a small child topples out of the seat.
Strickland catches the child a fraction of a second before it hits the ground.
The worker's heroic moment was posted as a gif on imgur.com on January 13 by his proud brother who said: "My bro made a nice save at work the other day, and they got it on video, so I thought I'd share with you all."
Strickland doesn't think what he did is a big deal, but his manager does.
"It actually brought tears to my eyes because he was able to be there for the baby," said Strickland's manager.
Home Depot will present Strickland with an Angel Award, only given to those who show exceptional acts of heroism.
"It really speaks to his heart. He's a great associate. He was obviously in the right place at the right time," said Strickland's manager.
This is Strickland's first job. He says he's saving up to buy a car.
