11-year-old Manuel Jimenez was hit during a drive-by shooting in southeast Houston on Monday. At the time of the shooting, he was with his 6-year-old brother, Moises. The child did not survive.
Manuel has been stuck in the hospital since the shooting occurred, unable to walk. To help cheer him up, his favourite Houston Texans player J.J. Watt came for a visit. It was a surprise to both him and his parents.
His mom says, "It was hard to see him so sad. Now we see him -- he's smiling."
Watt spent several hours hanging out with Manuel and playing video games and signing autographs.
