Apparently being a Dad gives you superpowers.
A gif doing the rounds on social media shows a father springing to life as his young daughter falls head first off the couch.
The gif, taken on home security camera footage, captures the father, who appears to be sleeping or watching TV, catching his daughter mid-fall as she takes a tumble off the couch next to him.
The gif has received thousands of comments after it was shared on Reddit with the caption “Dad Instincts”.
Many other fathers have weighed in with their parenting experiences, many sharing their frustration at how “babies suck at staying alive”.
