5-Year-Old Boy Operates a Giant Backhoe

A father in Pearl River, Louisiana captured footage of his 5-year-old son operating a giant backhoe. The awesome little kid successfully scooped up some dirt and dropped into the back of a dump truck.

Me and my son were at a local dirt pit. Each time we loaded the truck I let him sit on my lap and to learn the controls. On our last load, I felt he was comfortable enough to do it on his own. So I stepped out, turned on the camera, and let him do his thing!
