She’s really got milk.
A Scottish woman who went viral for helping to push a huge dairy truck up a snowy hill has been rewarded with a year’s supply of milk.
Charlene Leslie told the Central Fife Times how she left two of her three kids with a friend so she could get in the street and push a truck that was stuck with its wheels spinning in snow.
Video showed Leslie pushing the truck from behind as it moved uphill at a walking pace — with people dubbing her a real-life Wonder Woman.
After the clip went viral last week, Graham’s The Family Dairy, whose truck she pushed, tracked her down — and gave her “milk and high protein dairy products free for the rest of the year,” the company said.
“When I saw the video of Charlene pushing one of our artic lorries up a steep hill singlehandedly, I couldn’t believe it,” company chairman Dr. Robert Graham Snr. said.
“She not only made our family, farmers and colleagues smile, but clearly captured the hearts of thousands of people across the world.”
Still, the dairy company noted that “although she is a real-life superwoman” others should not “follow her actions,” with many noting it could have been deadly had the truck rolled backward.
Leslie agreed that it was “really dangerous,” but said, “I would never just stand by when I see someone in trouble. … In the moment I wasn’t really thinking about me, I just wanted to help.”
