This picture of Mizoram kid Derek C Lachhanhima rushing an injured chick to the hospital had gone viral on social media

Aizawl: The six-year-Mizoram kid, who made headlines across the globe for his humane act of trying to save a dead chicken, is now all set to receive a recognition from the animal rights organisation, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).

Derek C Lalchhanhima, the compassionate Mizo kid who had gained praises for his innocent act, will be honoured by PETA with the ‘Compassionate Kid Award’.

Earlier this month, Lalchhanhima had accidentally run over his neighbour’s chick with his cycle at Sairang. On realising his mistake, the little gentleman rushed the hurt chick to the nearest hospital with all the money he had.

The little boy is an epitome of goodness and shows to us that all is not lost. He does something which we adults often forget to do these days. We don’t even bother to stop to catch a glimpse of a human bleeding on road, forget about animals.

The story, posted on Facebook by a user ‘Sanga Says’ on Tuesday, had gone viral and has been shared over 94,000 times and counting.

Later, Lalchhanhima was praised by his school, St Pio, and was awarded a certificate of appreciation for his act.
