  • Albert Passavanti, a father from Palm Beach, Florida, went viral after jumping a 4-foot pool fence to save his son from drowning.
  • The footage has since been covered by many news sources and many are commending the dad for his quick action.
  • Albert hopes that their story would remind other parents about the importance of pool safety.

Pretty much like the Avengers, good parents would definitely do “whatever it takes” to protect their beloved children from harm. Take it from this awesome dad whose video recently went viral after he ‘flew’ over a 4-ft pool barricade to save his son from danger.

The incident happened in Palm Beach, Florida where Albert Passavanti and his family were enjoying some leisurely time. Their joy, however, turned to terror when Rocco, who is only 1 year and a half, went to reach for a big yellow ball in the pool area and suddenly slipped in the water.

Thankfully, Albert was alert and immediately sprang into action without any hesitation.

This dad is indeed a real-life superhero!

“The second you see it, you get Superman strength and just have to go for it,” Albert said in an interview with WPTV. “Whatever you got to do.”

Fortunately, both Albert and Rocco sustained no injuries from the incident.

Still, the dad hopes that other parents will learn from his experience and take pool safety seriously so they can safeguard their loved ones.
