Video of hugging toddlers charms the internet

Hugging toddlers

An adorable video of two toddlers running towards each other on a sidewalk in NY before locking into an affectionate embrace has gone viral on social media and warmed many hearts.

It was pure joy at first sight. PIX11 spoke with Michael D. Cisnero, the man who posted the video on Facebook.

Maxwell, 26 months old, and Finnegan, 27 months old, have been best friends for over a year now.

Michael Cisneros, Maxwell's dad, captured the moment. He even called them "partners in crime". "They are just too cute together".

Cisneros said he's not usually one to post private things on Facebook, but explained why he chose to share the video of his son and his best friend. The World would be such a handsome place if we could remain in... this precious state. "The reason that it's getting attention [is] because it is with a little black boy and a little white boy". They live in the same neighborhood, and they started riding the bus together to daycare.

He also told HuffPost that the inseparable tots pair share "food, clothes, toys, everything" and that "they communicate with each other in ways we don't understand, but they sure do".

He says "When they are away from each other, they are always asking about one another".

"There's not anyone else that comes close to Finnegan status in Maxwell's eyes", Cisneros said.

"Definitely not staged it's just a lucky moment that I caught on camera", Cisneros told WPIX-TV.
