An ingenious dad proved it’s better to work smarter not harder when he used a leaf blower to push her daughter in her rope swing.
When Hayden Harvey was playing in the garden at home in Connecticut on October 12, she asked her stepdad Alex Ramsey for a push.
Already clearing the grass of autumn debris, the 24-year-old decided to use the leaf blower already at his fingertips.
While his five-year-old came back around on her tyre, Alex gave Hayden another blast of the machine to help propel her away.
Mum Erica Harvey said: “I was inside cleaning and my fiancé and daughter said they were going outside to play.
“About 10 minutes later I hear the leaf blower going so I go check and he’s pushing her on the swing with the leaf blower.
“He carried on for probably 10-15 minutes.
“Alex is Hayden’s future stepdad and they have a very special bond.
“He has been in her life for a while now and they are inseparable.”
