Super Dad: Father Races To Save Toddler From Runaway Toy Car (Video)

Our kids all know that when they're in trouble, dad will come running. But not many of us fathers would manage it in quite such spectacular and speedy fashion as this heroic dad.

As a couple of children on a toy car go hurtling down a hill on a collision course with the father's toddler daughter, Superdad dons his virtual cape and pretty much flies past the 'speeding' car to his girl's rescue.

People in the background can be heard cheering when the father made the save.

The brilliant moment was captured on camera and posted on YouTube in a clip titled 'Father Mode Activate!', which has been viewed more than 1.3 million times.

Impressed YouTube user Kevin Town wrote: "That dude can run... I would have fallen & spilled my beer!"
