No parent willingly wants to stay away from their children, but certain jobs force them to relocate. And this heartwarming video of a father surprising his son after being away for a while perfectly captures the pent-up emotions between the father-son duo.
In the 39-second clip, which has gone viral on several social media platforms, the little boy can be seen wearing a blindfold while practising boxing – an activity he often did with his father as stated in the clip.
To surprise his son, the father switches places with the trainer as his son continues to practice. Moments later, the little boy recognises the presence of his father and bursts into tears while embracing him.
Watch the video here:
His father had been away for nearly a year due to his job.
