Emergency Service Workers Gather To Cheer Up 10-Year-Old Boy By Singing 'Happy Birthday' Outside His Home

(An Garda Siochana)

I did not think I would be ugly crying today, but I was wrong. Emergency service workers gathered to wish a 10-year-old boy a happy birthday. And, I'm sobbing.

Police and fire crews from Cork gathered outside Rian's house to sing him to him.

“We're not the greatest of singers, but we do our best!" An Garda Siochana tweeted.

“Rian from Cork is 10 yrs old today but hasn't been feeling well lately."

Rian could not leave his house, and would spend his birthday without his friends. So, these responders took it upon themselves to cheer him up.

“To cheer him up the emergency services gathered at a safe distance outside to sing Happy Birthday to him. Happy birthday Rian!"

Twitter loved it.

An officer can be heard promising to take Rian on a walk around his estate after the pandemic is over.

“We can go see your neighbors with the Garda dogs," he said.

All we can say is thank you for everything you do for the community.
