Worker catches baby as she falls off cart

A 19-year-old worker at an Anchorage Home Depot caught a baby who was falling out of shopping cart, an action caught on video that has been viewed online by thousands.

The Anchorage Daily News says Christopher Strickland was waiting for a customer last week when he noticed the baby was loose in a car seat atop the shopping cart.

Strickland says the arrangement looked precarious so he decided to keep an eye on it.

The baby began to tip out of the car seat and Strickland darted toward the cart, catching the girl in midair. It was moments before the infant's head would have hit the concrete floor.

The nine-second video is making the Internet rounds and has been viewed thousands of times on such sites as YouTube.
