This is from a couple of years ago, but it's still heartwarming to view. In Springfield, Missouri, A little white girl gets ahead of her mom and skips off the bus but then turns around and starts to walk out in traffic. A white bus driver (see them nowadays?) reacts swiftly and...well, check it out.
Don't you feel good inside? I love happy endings like this.
Here's the story from a news source

SPRINGFIELD, MO -- A Springfield, Missouri bus driver is hailed a hero for running into a busy street after a 3-year-old girl.
Security cameras on the city bus captured the moment last Tuesday when the toddler got off and started walking straight into moving traffic.
Driver Chris Leslie dashed out the bus door and grabbed the girl just as a truck screeched to a stop in front of them.
"I saw she was going to go. I have a girl that age and I know what they can do. I hit the horn and saw she wasn't going to stop, so I undid my seat belt and got out as fast as I could. Luckily I grabbed her in time," said Leslie.
The girl's mother was pushing another child in a stroller and had warned the child to wait for her. Leslie says he's just glad he was at the right place at the right time.
When he got home from work that day, he says the first thing he did was hug his 2-year-old daughter.
