Man surprises mother after five years apart
An emotional video has emerged from Sweden of a man surprising his mother by returning home after five years abroad.
The footage, captured on June 23 at a home in Renstad, shows the woman screaming with surprise as she sees her son getting out of a car and walking towards her.
Then they have a tender embrace
''After 5 years away from home, it was finally time to go back,'' the man later wrote online.
''Thanks to my amazing friends, I managed to get all the way from Taipei, Taiwan to the middle of the Swedish forest just in time to celebrate Midsummer with my family and my best friends.''
''Although almost everything was planned down to the last detail, we somehow forgot to tell my mom that I was coming,'' he added.
