A group of children in Maryland knew exactly what to do recently for a classmate worried about his twin brother.
Video shows a boy, whose name is Ethan, walking into his Rockville school when several of his friends ran toward him, WSAZ reported November 3.
In the background, it appeared their teachers were in the middle of reading a book aloud to the children when the scene unfolded.
When one of the adults saw what was happening, she said, “Aw!” as the children giggled with delight.
“That first girl really felt for him. Such a sweet hug,” one social media user wrote in the comment section, while another said, “Pure hearts. So much love and compassion at this age.”
“Omg stop. This is literally the sweetest,” another user replied.
Ethan and his twin brother, whose name is Bennett, reportedly share a rare genetic disease. Bennett has been recovering from pneumonia at the hospital for several weeks but hoped to return home next month, the WSAZ article said.
There is evidence that hugs can benefit a person’s health and well-being, according to the Cleveland Clinic’s website.
The touching video’s caption described the children as “amazing” and said, “Can’t wait to see what they do when Bennett comes back to school!”
