Four-year-old Max Pratt is known for bringing packages into the house for his mom.

That task turned dangerous on Thursday when a 100-pound box was delivered to the Chicago-area home and fell on Max as he tried to carry it inside.

"I was scared I was going to fall down the stairs," Max told WBBM.

Doorbell camera at the home captures Max screaming for help.

Then, it shows the UPS driver who had just delivered the package rushing to the rescue.

"I was saying help and the package man just came back," Max said.

The driver, Marco Angel, didn't hesitate to cross a busy highway when he saw the boy in trouble.

"As soon as I saw the package tilt, I just started running back to it," he told the news station. "I pictured my boys in his situation obviously and you go into full parent mode, full dad mode."

Now, Max is doing okay and enjoying the item that came in the box that fell on him: a new hammock.

His parents were able to thank Angel over a video call and told him his actions lived up to his last name.

Since the incident, Max's parents have also talked to him about not opening the front door unless an adult is around.
