Bystanders join boy with Down's syndrome to dance in front of busker

A heartwarming video has emerged of a group of people gathering around a young boy with Down's syndrome to dance along to a busker's song. The footage, shot in Leicester Square, London, UK on April 11, shows Jack leading the dance as people clap and dance around him. "Jack has Down's syndrome and is a severe epileptic who can have up to 150 epileptic events daily, he has no boundaries and fears nothing," Jack's father wrote online. "He absolutely loves music and his attention was drawn towards a busker in Leicester Square, London, who was giving his all for the watching crowd." "Jack walks with a profound limp and spends a lot of his time when out and about in his wheelchair. I asked Jack, who also has very little speech yet good understanding, if he'd like to come and put some coins in the buskers tin, he nodded and we walked over and Jack dropped the coins in," he added. "By this time, the busker, who we have since found out is Murdo Mitchell, had started playing a much more uptempo piece and as I turned Jack around so we could walk back to where his mother was standing, he pushed me away and started dancing on his own in front of the onlooking crowd." "within a minute a young lady joined him, then another couple joined him until eventually a crowd jumped in and joined them, all having a great time in the middle of the afternoon in central London."
