The mother is a ditz and will be shamed for this. Anybody living on or near QA should have an awareness for steep hills, gravity, etc. OTOH she may be the type that thinks her SUV can take the hills when it's icy.
Lawsuit to the makers of the stroller to ensue.

"Blackburn and a woman were able to stop the stroller just after it hit the curb."

lmftfy

"Blackburn and a woman were able to run up to the stroller just after it had already stopped."

Ah, the dreaded 'Carpathian Kitten Loss.' If only they had Caturday threads back then!

The mother sure was ungrateful. She didn't even thank them. Another Queen Anne snob.

Yeah, notice how she comes up and like almost pushes him away? "Don't you touch my baby garbage man, you could hurt him."

She wanted to hightail it before the cops arrived.

Don't baby carriages come with parking brakes anymore?

When the driver stated the mother just grabbed the kid and left, it didn't impact me, until I saw the video of this woman racing off without a single word of thanks to either person let alone apology for being so clueless and allowing this to happen to her child. WOW. Perhaps she ran as fast as she could so as to not be recognized and cited by police for child endangerment.

Babies are basically invincible in terms of stuff that could happen to humans pre-technology. You drop a baby from ten feet, it'll just bounce. Dog grab it by its trousers and drag it across the yard? Only slightly dirtier than usual. Terrifying diseases that scar you forever? Eh, it's just chicken pox, behold the ridiculous immune system.

Unfortunately, we do have technology now, and babies apparently take their nigh-invulnerability as a challenge.

If this had happened in China it is possible that no good Samaritan would have tried to rescue the baby. See the recent Fark vid entry:

A three-year-old boy drove his toy motorbike to a busy downtown street in an east China city, ignorant of the danger. A local police officer spotted the kid timely and led him down the street.

In China, for a private person (not a police man) to save another's life creates obligations on both sides - practically the same as if the savee was adopted by the saver's family.

However the jogger lady seems a biatch and I doubt she will invite the garbage man to the child's next birthday party.

That kid is going to grow up to be featured prominently on shows like "America's Funniest Home Videos," or maybe "Jackass: Speed Edition."

I always loved the illustrations.

I guess the thing that struck me odd about all this is that freaking garbage trucks have four dash-cams. (A. Can't believe the union agreed to that, and B. Why does a garbage truck need it?)

The garbage company has deep pockets so I guess investing in a little tech is safer than paying a $500,000 settlement claim for a trumped up accident. They probably get a discount on insurance for installing cams.

Seriously. The garbage dude got to the baby AFTER it had rolled to a stop off of the road AND another lady had already gotten there first. Story is made up bullshiat.

Ah, that wasn't it. He sped his truck down the hill honking his horn to warn other drivers. It got the FedEx driver to stop or else the baby might have been a bit flatter. "Luckily when I was honking the horn, a FedEx truck was going through the intersection and stopped because he heard the horn honking."

I literally just witnessed a ~6 year old girl run right into a pack of roller derby players doing laps to warm up for their bout. Just as she stumbled one of them scooped her up and delivered her to the sidelines. Darwin averted... for today, kid.
