If you are a parent, you realize that one of the most stressful times you can experience is if your child goes missing. It seems as if seconds stretch into hours and before long, you are in a full-out panic.
Of course, we all hope that we never run into this type of problem, and in many cases, the child shows up safe and sound. We live in a world where you do have to be concerned, however, and that is always in the back of our minds.
In Buenos Aires, Argentina, something similar happened in a crowded plaza. A young boy went missing, a child by the name of Juan Cruz, and his father, Eduardo, was very worried.
What might come as a surprise to you is exactly what happened when this took place. As it turns out, however, it’s not all that unusual for it to happen in South America.
When Juan Cruz realized he was separated from his father, the tallest man in the crowd put him up on his shoulders. The crowd started clapping so that Eduardo would look in that direction and people were even chanting his father’s name!
Even the man who is standing there with the child on his shoulders is clapping. It doesn’t take long before Eduardo runs up and takes his son to give him the biggest hug.
After a video of the moment was being posted on social media, people were shocked by how quickly this took place and how much the crowd was willing to assist when a child got lost. Some were even saying that they hoped that something similar will take place in the United States.
There were others who were from Argentina and also commented, saying that they had experienced something similar when they were young.
