Supermom: Proof that moms are superheroes

Supermom: Proof that moms are superheroes

When a mom senses danger, you bet she will be ready to kick into gear!

Mothers are often called 'superhuman' for managing several tasks over and above parenting. 

We wouldn't call it unusual; it is more of a response to being a mother. But we saw one mother go into 'supermom' mode when she was walking with her baby. 

In the video, we see the mother pushing the stroller, but her daughter is walking next to her. 

The child unknowingly steps onto a maintenance hole (manhole), which would've been okay if the manhole cover had been secured. 

But it was not and this caused the child to slip in. As with any accident, it all happened so fast. 

The mother acted instinctively and immediately tried to help her baby out. She was so focused and in immediate supermom mode that she picked the manhole cover up and flung it aside.
