Social media users are lauding a sanitation worker whose quick presence of mind saved a boy from a car accident as the video went viral.
The viral clip shows a boy standing near in front of the gate and waiting to cross the road, where a garbage truck was passing by. He makes a dash towards the other side but does not see a car coming from the opposite side of the road.
