As parents, we all go to great lengths to protect our kids. So when a car came hurtling towards Dad Michael Devore and his daughter, he had no hesitation in putting himself in harm’s way to save her.
The harrowing moment was caught on CCTV footage, when the pair were walking across the street on a zebra crossing, a red car comes racing up towards them.
Michael swiftly pushes his young daughter, age 11, out of the way, but ends up being hit by the car himself.
“My main objective was to push her out of the way and if I had to take the hit I had to take the hit,” Devore said to CBS's Inside Edition.
The hero dad suffered multiple fractures to both of his legs, but it was a mission accomplished because his daughter was saved.
“It was so scary so I started crying,” his daughter Ryan said.
The driver is still being sought by Police.
