Chinese girl cries tears of joy as mother returns home after 6-month absence

A 9-year-old girl cried tears of joy as her mother returned home after half a year in central China. The heartwarming video filmed in the city of Zhumadian in Henan Province on September 7 shows a girl opening a flat door and suddenly bursting into tears after seeing her mother. The girl's elderly sister then came over to check and she was heard saying "mum is back." According to the girls' mother Ms Li, she and her husband were working in various places and did not go back home for around six months. Li wanted to surprise her daughters by taking a train back home without letting them know. The video was provided by local media with permission.
