Thank God this Michigan State Trooper was where he was the other day, because had he not been there, this story would have likely had a different ending.

UPNORTHLIVE shared a video from the Michigan State Police of a trooper's dash cam that shows a two-year-old girl walking across a busy road, then the trooper running out and grabbing her, right before a dump truck passes by.

just watching the video, you can see the child was about to turn and go back into traffic, and even though the truck was trying to stop, it never would have in time.

The child's mother came around right after the trooper saved the kid and said she had just lost sight of the child for one minute.

Thank GOD there are #peopledoinggood everywhere and just a scary reminder how quickly tragedy can occur.
