Man thinks his young son was killed, discovers he wasn’t, absolutely breaks down

In the Syrian town of Zamalka, a father recently thought his little boy had been killed in attacks by regime forces. But a few days ago, he discovered that, in fact, the boy was alive and well. It’s hard to imagine the overwhelming surge of almost painful joy that must have caused.

In the clip, a group of men, themselves nearly overcome with emotion, show up at the father’s house with the boy. After about a minute the father comes out and sees his son alive…

Of course, the video doesn’t focus at all on the reunion of the boy with his mother, but that may be what is happening between 2:10 and 3:45.
