A Ring doorbell camera captured this incredible footage of a UPS driver, whose lightning-fast reflexes kicked into high gear when he heard a little boy crying for help after a large package pinned him to the ground.

When you’re a parent, there are days you’ll feel like your hands are full. Just take it from this dad, who made an epic save after he took a tumble with his daughter in his arms after heading out with his family for the day.

Few things are scarier than when the device designed to protect you ends up being the source of trouble, as shown in this security camera footage taken from a little boy’s bedroom. While being tucked in for the night, the little boy tells his parents that he keeps hearing a voice speaking to him through the camera. What’s even more alarming is that this wasn’t the first time the little boy had mentioned this, prompting his parents to remove the camera immediately. 

5. Nursery camera captures dog’s strange behavior in off-limits baby room: ‘He doesn’t know we installed a camera’

Being naturally curious, dogs love nothing more than having free rein to explore. A dog named Beef took full advantage of his family’s absence one day by sneaking into rooms that would usually be off-limits, like the baby’s nursery. In the Google Nest footage nominated for a Nestie for “Best Choreography,” Beef enters the baby’s nursery crawling on his stomach, before he stops in the middle of the room to happily roll around on the carpet.
