They say that not all heroes wear capes, but it would seem that they do all wear a uniform of some description.

Despite what we have been taught by Hollywood, not all heroes need to be clad in a leather/lycra ensemble in order to save the day – sometimes a seemingly ordinary man can possess the lightning-quick reactions that could save a life.

Take this courier, for example, who managed to save a dog’s life with only seconds to spare – I mean, who needs Captain America when you have a parcel delivery man?!

Watch the video to see the remarkable moment for yourself…

His swift actions no doubt saved the dog from suffering a rather gruesome fate.

In fact, his response was so quick that many are questioning if real superheroes really do live among us – Tony Stark, is that you?

Clearly, the courier was in the right place at the right time. Although, rather confusingly, the entire incident may have been avoided had he not been there in the first place.

No matter what the scenario, there is no doubt that this delivery man has exceptional powers for detecting trouble.

His skills are so impressive that, if we lived in a world where the Avengers are real, it is almost guaranteed that he’d be called into action to help save the world.

Okay, maybe that’s pushing it a little too far. At the end of the day, he saved a poodle. But that may only be the start of his crime-fighting, life-saving career.

I guess what I am trying to say is, never underestimate anybody – especially not those in a uniform.

Everyday heroes exist all around the globe, there are thousands of people out there just like this courier. Maybe even you have the ability to make a difference in society.

But, when it comes to Thanos, I think maybe it’s best if we leave it to the professionals – if you can call them that after Infinity War. Awkward.

Anyway, this pooch has lived to tell the tale and the courier is now able to continue his unassuming life delivering parcels – until the next time danger strikes! Watch this space!
