A Merseyside mum was left 'emotional' after a boy helped her son in a soft play area.

Verma Davey, 35, from Woodchurch, said the boy rushed to help her son in Brimstage Maze, off Brimstage Road, on Saturday, July 31.

The boy, who Verma believes was around 10 years old and called Hugo, gave a helping hand to her two year old son Koni after he wanted to go on the 'big slide' at the play area.

The 35-year-old told the ECHO she wasn't able to go up onto the slide with him due to her disability.

She said: "Koni saw the big slide in the play area and ran over there because he wanted to go onto it. He was trying to make his was up to the slide but he got a little bit lost and stuck as he had to go over a rope bridge.

"He had his foot stuck in the rope bridge so I asked this boy if he saw him on the way, he replied really pleasantly saying yes, and then I asked if he wouldn't mind going to help him get to the big slide."

Hugo did not hesitate and went straight to Koni and waited with him until he was comfortable enough to follow him to the slide.

Verma said: "Once they got to the slide Koni realised how high it was and didn't want to go down, Hugo waited with him patiently until he was comfortable again and then they went down the slide.

"He even slid down the slide with him to make sure he is okay. I am really amazed at how gentle, calm and patient he was to my boy.

"He had his arm behind him, but not touching him so he didn't feel uncomfortable and he was just so thoughtful.

"It made me really emotional."

After being unable to find the boy's parents at the soft play area, Verma is hoping to reach the family on social media to say thank you.

She said: "It was a brilliant example of just how kind children can be and I just want to thank him and let his parents know how amazing he is.

"I would like to say thank you for raising a very kind and helpful boy.

"If anyone knows them, please let them know how grateful we are to their boy and what amazing parents they are.

"I can forward them a video I took of them going down the slide so they can see what a wonderful person their son is."
