A 5 -year-old autistic boy from Ojai, California who greets the garbage man got a surprise present from his hero.

Manuel Sanchez surprised 5-year-old Daniel Mulligan with a brand new toy truck.

A video has gone viral since it was posted and has over 700,000 views. 

He asks the boy's mom, 'Can I give a present to him?'

Sanchez got out of the truck and walked over with a giant plastic bag with something new inside.

It was a large plastic truck.

Daniel was so overcome by the gift that all he could say was a quiet, 'thank you.'
