Burnley fan has some serious dad reflexes, saves shot from smacking child in the face
Not all heroes wear capes
It was nearly freezing and snow was falling in Burnley, England as Chelsea came to town for a Premier League match on Sunday. And while the match was even and competitive, the top performer didn't come on the pitch -- it came from the stands.
A shot from Burnley flew rapidly into the bleachers where a home supporter was alert, punching the ball away before it drilled a young kid in the face. Check it out as this man reacts perfectly to help the little boy out.
He has to be a dad, because those are some fatherly instincts. Considering the child's mother had her hands full, it was going to be tricky for her to react, so this man stepped up. Those who play soccer know what it's like to take a rocket shot right to the face. And it's even worse when it is that cold. But this kid didn't get to experience it, thankfully, with the Burnley hero saving the day.
