A group of strangers helped celebrate a seven-year-old boy's birthday after his first classmates didn't come to see the party.
Colten Raymer, soon to be a second assessor, from Keystone Heights, Florida, made handmade birthday invitations and put them out during school.
The child invited everyone to his Fortniet theme party, which will be held in the park the following week. But nobody came on the date.
Heartbreaking: Colten Raymer had his birthday when he turned seven at a birthday party in the park in Keystone Heights, Florida, but no one showed up
Thinking outside the box: his mother, Meagan Raymer, decided to post about the party in a community Facebook page to see if she could save the birthday
Heart warming: her post on Facebook inspired both the fire department and the sheriff department in the city to stand up for the little boy's birthday
& # 39; I felt sad when none of my friends showed up, & # 39; Colten said Good morning America.
Colten showed up at the local park where his party would be held in a Fortniet T-shirt made by his mother, Meagan Raymer.
The child was sitting on a bench waiting for his friends to arrive, but no one ever did it.
& # 39; Sitting at the picnic table, Colten looked at me and the park entrance and repeatedly asked me when his friends would show up, & # 39; Meagan told the news site.
& # 39; It was really heartbreaking because this was his first party with his school friends – he was really excited about it and wasn't sure why they didn't. & # 39;
In an effort to save the birthday party, Meagan decided to post it on a local Facebook page in the hope that strangers would be willing to come and celebrate Colten when they turned seven.
Within 15 minutes, firemen from Clay County Fire Department arrived with flashing lights to help the boy celebrate.
Supportive mother: & # 39; It was really heartbreaking because this was his first party with his school friends – he was very excited about it and wasn't sure why they didn't show it, & # 39; Megan said.
Happy: members of the community were also present and brought gifts for Colten
Fun times: the fire brigade let the children hold their equipment and sit in the truck
& # 39; We are a very small neighboring village and everyone who attended wanted to support a fellow community member in need, & # 39; said Meagan, and Colten said it was the best birthday
Another 50 residents of the community also showed up shortly after the firefighters, some even bringing presents to Colten.
Children could then play with the firefighter's equipment, test the hose and even climb on the fire truck during the party.
In a Facebook post, the Clay County Fire Department later explained how they went to Colten's birthday party that day.
& # 39; Clay Fire Station 11 (Keystone Heights) came by to wish this special young child a very happy birthday, & # 39; wrote the group.
& # 39; This guest invited friends from the class who all happened to be out of town and the crew was told he could be celebrated alone, so they headed to the party to give him an extra special birthday !!! This is what we do! #ForTheCommunity! Heroes made to save lives, they impress young minds! Happy birthday young man! & # 39;
The fire brigade was not the only organization that arrived before the event. Two cars from the Clay County Sheriff & # 39; s Office also stopped at the party.
& # 39; We are a very small neighboring village and everyone who attended wanted to support a fellow community member in need, & # 39; said Meagan.
The party consisted of chocolate cupcakes, crisps, popsicles and a group of strangers ready to celebrate Colten. They all sang to him when the cupcakes were released.
& # 39; This was my best birthday so far, & # 39; Colten said.
