CHARLOTTE, N.C. (CNN) — A U.S. Navy dad who hadn’t seen his son for months surprised the little boy during the Christmas Eve Carolina Panthers game in Charlotte
During the Falcons-Panthers game Saturday afternoon, young Solomon Fletcher was brought on the field and given a game ball as a Christmas gift.
Then, to Solomon’s surprise, his father David popped out of the sleigh.
Solomon hadn’t seen his father, a petty officer third class in the Navy, in six months.
Solomon jumped into the arms of his father, hugging him, and waved to the crowd.
