Boy, 5, drives dad's digger (Video)

Any young boy who's watched Bob the Builder wants to drive a digger like the characters Scoop and Muck.

But this five-year-old gets to do it for real – and look at him go!

Wang Shuhan was filmed operating the heavy machinery in China after his dad let him take the controls on a building site.

The boy is fearless as she tears across the site and then uses the scoop to move a mountain of sand.

It wasn't the first time little Wang has got to drive every boy's dream. For his construction worker dad, Wang Xuebing – who posted this video to You Tube - revealed he'd been bringing his son to work since he was three.

He said: "I sometimes explained to him the functions of the gears within the compartment, and when he was three he asked me to have a try. Amazingly he did it."

Despite the dangers involved, Wang said he always kept an eye on the boy to make sure he was safe.

Wang the Builder, can he fix it? Yes, he can!
