an Oh Myyy Property

A boy desperate to help out his mom jumped on his hoverboard so he could still mow the lawn after hurting his leg.


Nathan Gallacher, a creative 11-year-old, was keen to cut the grass to do something nice for mom Liz Robertson, after she had an operation. But, after suffering a mishap of his own – he hurt his leg while playing on a trampoline with friends – he had to think of a cunning plan to make himself useful.

“He was saying his leg was sore but he still wanted to help me," Robertson told PA. “I told him just to leave it but the next minute I was just cooking breakfast and I looked out and he was going up and down the garden on a hover board cutting the grass. I couldn't believe it. I was like, 'what is he doing?'"

Robertson took a video and posted it on Facebook and soon started to see the numbers rise as friends shared and commented on it.

Although she was surprised by the sight of her son mowing the lawn on a hoverboard, Ms. Robertson said the behavior was entirely in character.

“He's such a good boy, he'll do anything to help anybody," she said. “He even went out in the winter when the leaves were all on the ground, he's got a trailer that he puts on the back of his bike, and he cleaned all the street of all the leaves. He was scared in case… the pensioners fell when they went to the shops. He's just such a good boy."

But every day, disturbing hate-fueled incidents seem to be cropping up at an alarming frequency.
