SAN DIEGO, CA - An 8-year-old boy in San Diego received a very special long-distance Valentine's Day greeting from his number one fan ... his mother.
Shannon Greene is currently stationed in Afghanistan, but she wanted to make sure her son, Sean, knew she was thinking about him on Valentine's Day.
With the help of our sister station in San Diego, 10 News , they pulled off an incredible (and emotional) TV surprise. Fair warning, you're going to want a box of tissues nearby.
How did the 10 news team pull off the Surprise? They brought Sean in for a station tour, showing him the control room, the newsroom and even preparing a script for him to read.
Sean had an IFB hooked up to his ear which allowed him to hear the producers, and as he was practicing his script the anchor tells him to look over at a nearby monitor on set -- in uniform and all the way from Afghanistan was his mother from a live satellite feed.
Sean's reaction? Heart-warming and priceless. Watch the video in the player above.
