Mum Branded A 'Tank' After Pushing Lorry Up Snowy Hill
A heroic mum has been branded a 'tank' after being filmed pushing a lorry up a hill in a snowy town in Fife, Scotland. Watch here:
The video was shared on the Fife Jammer Locations Facebook page. In the clip, we see mum-of-three Charlene Leslie pushing a Graham's Dairies milk lorry up a hill during a blizzard, with other vehicles on the road passing by gingerly in the snow.
"Just your average Cowdenbeath woman pushing a lorry up a hill," the caption said.
The post has since gone viral, racking up more than 3,000 likes and 2,000 comments - including many people expressing their respect for her strength, with one user calling her a 'tank'.
One Facebooker joked: "Somebody's had their Weetabix this morning."
Charlene has since been awarded a year's supply of free milk as a thank you from Graham's for pushing their lorry.
She said she saw the lorry was in trouble when she was out shopping with two of her kids and rushed to help.
She told The Sun: "I would never just stand by when I see someone in trouble. I suppose what I did was really dangerous, but thankfully the Graham's truck got safely up the hill.
"In the moment I wasn't really thinking about me, I just wanted to help.

"A load of people were trying to push a car up the hill when I noticed the Graham's truck coming behind it. Its front wheels were spinning, and it was stuck from all the snow.
"My neighbour appeared, so I asked her to watch the kids and the dog while I pushed it from the back. Eventually it made it safely to the top.
"I cannot believe all the attention I am getting for what I did. I simply believe that it is your duty to help others if they are in trouble."
Graham's Chairman Dr Robert Graham Snr added: "When I saw the video of Charlene pushing one of our artic lorries up a steep hill singlehandedly, I couldn't believe it.
"As a family we are passionate about our fresh dairy products and like us, she will clearly stop at nothing to ensure they get delivered to our customers.
"Although she is a real-life superwoman, for health and safety reasons we must advise others not to follow her actions.
"As a heartfelt thank you, Charlene and her family will receive our milk and high protein dairy products free for the rest of the year."
