Father saves young daughter from being leveled by NBA player

Dad of the year? Maybe. The slo-mo video of Chicago's Tony Snell diving into the crowd is mesmerizing.

Chances are no father ever thinks when they go to an NBA game: "Man, I hope my child doesn't get crushed by a player tonight."

Well, that almost happened during Wednesday night's Bulls-Knicks game at Madision Square Garden.

Thankfullly, a father in the front row acted quickly when he saw Bulls guard Tony Snell heading their way while chasing down a loose ball.

Check out this mesmerizing slo-motion video and see how the father grabbed his daughter just before disaster struck.

Well done, sir. Well done.
