It's said that when you become a parent, your body is always ready to jump into superhero mode whenever you feel or see that your child is in imminent physical danger. For fathers, this is known as the 'dad reflex'.

Watch: Little girl falls on railway line moments before train departs

While posing for a picture with his daughter at Yosemite National Park, things almost took a turn for the worse when the little girl took a step back only to trip on the short edge of a walk way.
