Photo of ‘Umbrella Dad’ Goes Viral

A photo of a man and a young boy walking together in the rain has gone viral after it was shared on Reddit over the weekend.

The man, assumed to be the father, is soaked wet from the rain while he holds an umbrella over the young boy, assumed to be his son.


The photo was first uploaded to Reddit by 25-year-old Eumine Choi on Friday night with the caption: “Hope the son just grows up to realize how lucky he is… Pay it forward.”

Choi told NBC News he took the photo in Flushing, Queens, after leaving work, and had originally intended to only share the photo on Facebook. He said he didn’t think it would grab so much attention.
