SPOONER, Wisc. — A police officer in Wisconsin was in the right place at the right time, as a baby in a runaway shopping cart headed toward traffic.
The child’s mother was placing another kid in her car when the cart got away from her.
A quick-thinking police officer happened to see the baby rolling by and drove immediately toward the infant.
“I knew there wasn’t an option to stop the cart, but I had to do something to try to stop traffic because it was headed directly toward a busy highway,” Officer Adam Brunclik said.
Fortunately, Brunclik was able to stop traffic with his emergency lights and grab the little boy from the cart uninjured.
