“This made me emotional. As a mother, I hate seeing a parent panic because of their child in danger. It’s the absolute worst feeling and I don't wish that on anyone. Thank God he was ok in the end,” added another. “This just made me cry,” joined a third. “Literally the scariest 30 seconds a parent could imagine,” wrote a fourth.
