In fire stricken Australia, toddler dances on watching his first rain
Perth : While there have been several heart-wrenching videos of the recent fire incident, a heart-warming video from Australia has made its way to the internet.
The cutest video shows an 18-month old toddler jumping in joy as Sunni Mckenzie witnesses his first-ever rain at the family's farm in New South Wales, reports 9 News.
Heavy rains were seen in several parts of Australia after a long dry spell, raising hope that a large part of the bush fire will get extinguished with this on its own. Australia has been battling its worst bushfire season on record since September last year. The fires have already claimed 29 lives, killed millions of animals, destroyed homes and forests and polluted the air.
The fresh rains have brought back hopes and smiles on the face of several Australians. The video of the toddler has been captured by his mother Tiffanie Mckenzie, who shared it with 9 News. It was posted on Twitter by Indian Forest Services Officer Susanta Nanda.
"Heavy rain in Australia is bringing joy to the drought-stricken continent. This 18-month-old boy is thrilled seeing it for the 1st time," wrote Mr Nanda while sharing the video on the microblogging platform. "Yes. Rains after 18 months is paradise."
"When the rain came we raced outside to move the plants out and he just kept walking out to the rain and just stood in it," Sunni's mother told Daily Mail Australia.
"He hasn't had the chance to do this before. Needless to say, he enjoyed it."
Meanwhile, several other social media users also posted a video of rains in Australia. https://twitter.com/_SJPeace_/status/1217585777166749698
According to Reuters, meteorologists and water authorities have warned that the rain might bring relief, but heavy downpours also bring the risk of landslides and water pollution.
