Brothers aren't know for their sensitivity – and this lad proves the point by laughing hysterically at his terrified sister's screams while she has a flu jab.
Poor Michaela Goetze was in a state of panic as a nurse prepared to give her the protective injection. But the girl got little – actually, no – sympathy from her callous sibling, who mocked her fear throughout.
Footage posted to YouTube – where it has been viewed more than 800,000 times since - shows Michaela fluctuating between laughter and tears as her anxiety levels. If you've recently taken your own to get their injections, this might seem familiar!
But her pain is her brother's gain, which he displays by running around the room laughing hysterically while his sister squirms in terror.
Story continues after video...
Mum Catherine tries to calm her daughter down but fails and Michaela pushes the nurse away at one point before, screaming and yelling, unable to pull herself together. But the little girl's wails are drowned out by the loud guffaws of laughter of Hector.
Michaela's dramatic screams get louder as she keeps repeating 'Oh my god, oh my god, oh my god.' And then, finally, it's all over and the nurse pops a bandage on Michaela's arm. The nurse jokes: "I can't wait 'til you have a baby." Just make sure super-sensitive bruv isn't in the delivery suite, eh!
