SALT LAKE CITY — The Snow White character at Walt Disney World shared an emotional and heartwarming moment with a young boy who has autism and is nonverbal.

The boy’s mother, Lauren Bergner, shared information about the moment in a recent Facebook post. She explained she and her son, Brody, who has autism and is nonverbal, began having an “autism meltdown” while waiting in line to snap photos with Snow White, according to Fox News.

“He was crying and was overwhelmed and just having a hard time,” she wrote in her Facebook post.

When it was Brody’s turn for a photo, Snow White went above and beyond for him. She walked him away from the crowd, cuddled with him and hugged him. They danced together, too, according to ABC11.

Snow White then rested the boy’s head on her lap.

“She was amazing. She held his hand, danced with him, took him over to a bench and sat with him,” she wrote. “She went above and beyond!! She took so much time with him.”

“She was a pure angel,” Bergner wrote. “She was magical and my family is forever thankful and touched!”
