Job Interview Turns Into Heroic Rescue Mission! California Man saves a Baby
When his life recently took an unexpected turn, Ron Nessman, a man from California, exemplified the phrase “right place at the right time.” Ron, who had been battling melancholy for months, was on his way to rebuilding his life last week when he saved a child while returning from a job interview.
On May 1, when Ron was heading home after submitting a job application to the restaurant chain Applebee’s, the incident took place. Hesperia, California’s San Bernardino county, was the location of his interview, and thereafter he was outside, sitting on a bench, when he noticed “an extraordinary emergency unfolding,” according to the Guardian.
According to the sources, in a moment of sheer luck and quick thinking, a woman’s great-nephew was saved from danger when a sudden gust of wind caused his stroller to roll towards a busy road near a car wash. The woman had placed the child in the stroller and stepped away momentarily when the wind intervened, pushing the stroller toward the fast-moving cars on the street. Luckily, Ron, who happened to be nearby, leaped off a bench and sprang into action to save the child. He sprinted towards the stroller and managed to grab it just in the nick of time, averting a potential tragedy. Ron’s heroic actions were captured on video, which has since gone viral on social media.
The incident serves as a reminder of the importance of being aware of our surroundings and taking quick action in moments of crisis. Ron’s bravery and selflessness in risking his own safety to save the child are an inspiration to us all.

“I took off after it…I heard the lady screaming,” Ron said, recalling the incident. “I didn’t even have time to think about it. You just react,” the good samaritan added.
Ron has received acclaim for his actions after they were caught on CCTV close to the scene of the incident. Additionally, he was hired by Applebee to work as a dishwasher, however general manager Emily Canady of the establishment made it clear that this had nothing to do with the incident. “He’s a great guy, he was a great candidate, and he’ll definitely fit with us here,” she said.
Donna Gunderson, Ron’s sister, had also seen what happened. In the wake of an eight-year period of homelessness and poor mental health, Ron has been living with his sister for the past three months.
