An employee at a Home Depot in Alaska is being called a hero after catching a baby who tumbled from a shopping cart.

On Sunday, Dale Strickland posted a video of the save on YouTube with the description, “my brother saving a baby falling off a cart at home depot.”

As of Thursday morning, the video had more than 144,000 views.

The Alaska Dispatch confirmed Strickland’s brother, Chris, is the employee who made the save. He declined to comment.
