A video has emerged of a Chick-fil-A employee tackling a would-be carjacker who stole the keys from a woman who had a baby in her arms.

In the video you can see the worker hold down the perpetrator, while others come to help. And as one passerby rightfully shouted out, “How dare you!” on a number of occasions, since the woman was all the more vulnerable having a little one with her.

The employee was incredibly brave, especially as the carjacker could easily have had a weapon. But it takes these sorts of courageous people to remind us that we should always stand up for the vulnerable, and that there are some pretty amazing people out there who are unafraid to do the right thing.
