Seafarer dad hides inside box to surprise son he hasn’t seen in months

This is the sweet moment a seafarer dad hid inside a box to surprise his son after months without seeing him.

Jessie Jao, 32, had been on board for almost a year and was finally able to return home on October 23 in Cavite City, the Philippines. Heartwarming footage shows Jessie’s son excitedly unwrapping the package and finding his dad squeezed inside, waiting to surprise him.

Mother Roxanne Jao said: ‘I was so happy because after being apart for months, we are finally together. Our son’s reaction was priceless.’
