Surprise Reunion Leaves Father and 12-Year-Old Son in Tears

A father and his 12-year-old son were left in tears after a surprise reunion in Forestville, Maryland, on June 16.

Jonathan Stewart, who shot this footage, told Storyful his brother, Coach Joe, had just been released from prison. Joe and his son, TayRon, had kept in close contact, with Joe even helping out with homework over the jail phone. However, this was the first time they had seen each other since Joe’s imprisonment.

“He just thought he was being picked up from routine workouts,” Stewart said, adding that TayRon “had no idea of what he was about to see.” Credit: Jonathan Stewart via Storyful
