A couple of months ago, he had shared a video of a young boy protecting his shop amid a heavy storm and the heartbreaking clip struck a chord with internet users.
Mr Along took to X to share the video. In the video, the boy is seen helping his mother amid a heavy storm. He initially holds on to the tarpaulin sheet while his mother ties a rope to the items kept in the shop. Further in the video, he runs to pick up a chair that fell as a result of the heavy winds. Mr Along was amazed by the fact that the boy was too young to comprehend that level of responsibility.
"Age is not a factor to understand responsibility, the circumstances only teach it!" reads the caption of the 31-second video.
