“I didn’t even have time to think about it,” Nessman told the local news station KOVR-TV when reflecting on his actions, which many have hailed as heroic.
Nessman had left the interview and was waiting on a bench outside when he spotted an extraordinary emergency unfolding.
A woman had stopped on the driveway of a nearby car wash and loaded her great-nephew into a stroller when strong winds blew the baby away from her.
Nessman told the California news station KNSD that relatives as far away as Florida and Missouri had seen the footage.
KNSD reported on 4 May that Applebee’s subsequently hired Nessman, and his orientation was scheduled for the next day.
He has also reportedly received other job offers, including painting and driving big rigs again. »
