Watch: Here's 60 Seconds of Superhuman Dads Saving Their Kids at the Last Second


Today is Father’s Day, a day set aside for everyone to celebrate the dads in their lives who have made the effort to raise their children and keep them safe from harm.

Of course, given the manner in which some children behave, that can be easier said than done, and can at times require seemingly superhuman efforts to keep kids who put themselves in danger from experiencing real harm.

The following video is a collection of clips of superhuman dads doing just that, quite literally saving their own kids — or perhaps even the children of others — just in the nick of time.

Please take a moment out of your day to watch these dads do what dads sometimes have to do:

These fathers exhibited the sort of quick thinking and rapid reflexes one would expect from a superhero, which is what these dads pretty much are, at least in the eyes of the children they saved from potential catastrophe.

How many of those kids were just about to smash their faces or bust their heads wide open until a dad stepped in?

There is no doubt that many of those dads saved the kids from a black eye, bloody nose, lost tooth, split head … or possibly even worse.

How many of those kids were about to crash into a car on their bikes, or even be hit by a car, were it not for dad making a quick move to save the day?

Are you grateful for all of the superhero dads out there?

How many were about to fall into a hole or take a nasty spill on the ground, had a superdad not swooped in to save them from disaster?

Astute observers will note that it isn’t even always little kids who need a superhuman dad to save them from their own dangerous activity, as an obviously older boy was saved from crashing into a flaming grill by the quick actions of a nearby dad.

This video was but a tiny collection of the untold stories of heroic deeds done by dads on behalf of their children, heroic deeds that aren’t always seen and rarely earn the commendation they deserve.

Fathers all across the world will leap into action on a split-second’s notice in order to prevent their kid from suffering undue harm, and while it may seem like typical dad-duty for those men, it is the brave actions of a hero to those being saved.

How many of you dads out there have had a similar experience, taking decisive action at the last second to save a child from experiencing pain and suffering?

If you have, take a moment to pat yourself on the back and realize that, though they may not always — or ever — say it, you are a superhero in the eyes of your children.

Now the only question that remains is, how many of those kids saved by a dad expressed their gratitude for being saved, or did they simply run off to find some other method of teasing danger for which dad would have to step in and save them once more?
