'Dad Skills': Father Single-Handedly Catches Falling Son

A father showcased his dad skills when catching his two-year-old son, single-handedly, just moments before the toddler fell down stairs outside their house in Edmonds, Washington.

Jacob Hitchner told Storyful that he was teaching his son, Jace, how to walk down the stairs. The home surveillance camera captured the moment the toddler loses his balance. Hitchner quickly scoops up his son before he hits the ground.

“You’re gonna be careful, I taught you,” Hitchner can be heard comforting the sobbing toddler.

“Dad skills. Btw, I’m right-handed,” Hitchner wrote in a Twitter post that featured the video. Credit: Jacob Hitchner via Storyful
