President Trump responded to a viral video of a catering truck spinning wildly out of control at Chicago’s O’Hare Airport, commending the person whose quick thinking ended the rampaging machinery.
The video, which went viral on Monday evening and into Tuesday morning, showed several airport workers watching in disbelief as a catering truck was quickly spinning in place and flinging its contents across the tarmac.
Near the end of the footage, one of the workers gets a forklift usually used for loading luggage onto airplanes to flip the vehicle. The worker intervened moments before the driverless food truck was about to strike a plane parked on the tarmac.

Every workplace ever.
Everyone standing nearby watching the crash.
One supervisor frantically waving and no one listening.
One person risks all to save the situation.

This guy just lived all of our dreams.

The guy with the forklift didn't decide to ram the food cart until it was about to hit the plane. He may have wrecked the food card but he saved a much more expensive aircraft.

Crazy, but good job from creating more of disaster.
