In the aftermath of the tragedy that took place in Las Vegas at the beginning of October, more and more tear-jerking stories of those who were caught in the hell that unleashed when the first bullets began to rang out are emerging.
One of those stories is that of a 5-year-old boy who found himself scared and alone in the chaos that took over the Las Vegas strip after the shooting. Aden Huser got separated from his mom during the worst moment of his life, but thanks to the power of social media, the boy was reunited with his mother in a scene that will bring you to tears.
You see, Aden’s mom, Doris, took his sister to use the bathroom just seconds before the attack. Aden was left with his aunt, but when people started running all over the place, sometimes stepping on those who were on the ground, Aden and his aunt were separated.
Chaos took over and no one knew what to do or where to go. Luckily though, a good Samaritan Lindsey Rogers noticed the boy standing alone. He was in shock, and the woman grabbed him by the arm and helped him take cover.
The woman acted out of instinct, and her gesture of pure humanity most likely saved the boy’s life. In the hours following the attack, when everyone desperately began looking for their loved ones, Lindsey posted a photo of the boy on social media hoping to locate his family.
Aden’s grandfather saw the picture, and just a few hours later, Aden was reunited with his mom. Take a look:
