A firefighter has gone the extra mile to provide comfort to the young victim of a car accident in Mississippi.
Casey Lessard knelt down next to the chid and used his mobile phone to play the little boy the film "Happy Feet".
The incident saw five people ejected from an SUV when it left the road and flipped several times in D'iberville.
As rescue crews arrived on the scene - preparing to transport the adult driver and five children to hospital - Lessard went out of his way to reassure the boy.
He did so by playing the animated film "Happy Feet", the tale of a young emperor penguin, living in Antarctica.
D'Ibervile Fire Capt. Darren Peterson said his firefighters do everything they can to soothe children involved in traumas such as this.
"The kids … we do whatever we can to calm them down," Peterson said. "The video calmed him down instantly."
