Makai Simmons and his mother Tekara Capron had traveled to the island to visit their relatives in Freeport during Labor Day before they & # 39; lost everything, including clothing and toys, after their home in Grand Bahama was flooded
The & # 39; family lost everything & # 39 ;, including clothing and toys, after their home in Grand Bahama was flooded in the category 5 storm.
The mother and son had traveled to the island during Labor Day to visit their relatives in Freeport.
They made the trip back to the US on a cruise ship on Friday night after waiting 13 hours in line.
Since Tekara, who lived in the Bahamas until the age of 19, shared the video on Monday, it has attracted a number of positive reactions from Instagram users.
One said: & # 39; This is the feel-good moment that we all need. & # 39;
Another added: “If only we all had the hearts as pure as those of children. This is so cute. & # 39;
Tekara told ABC: & # 39; As soon as he entered, everyone just jumped up. It was really emotional.
& # 39; The love we received when we returned to the US was incredible.
& # 39; I just want people to know that the Bahamas is a nation with loving people and a rich culture. We are happy to accept all the help someone can give, and are extremely grateful to everyone who has had so much love.
& # 39; We are seeing so much trauma right now, so to see the love that children show, I thought that was wonderful. The rest of the world had to see that too, especially the Bahamas. & # 39;
She had previously shared photos of Makai who was wearing his spiderman vest to help rescue the children in the water.

The mother wrote: & # 39; House is flooded. Like many of my island, we have lost everything. But I don't care, they are material things. We have life that cannot be replaced.
& # 39; I have never seen anything like this in my 22 year old life. But in Kai & # 39; s 3rd year of life, he experienced a storm that he calls a monster. A storm that makes him jump and hide from the sound of strong winds. A storm that inspired him to be brave and put on his lifejacket, saying, "Mommy … I have to save the children in the water!"
& # 39; He doesn't even hear the Dorian name. I felt this for the children. Thank you to all my family and friends who have constantly monitored us during the storm and even offered their help. Thanks to EVERYONE who already helps my people. THE MOST IMPORTANT, thank goodness he helped us through this. & # 39;
At least 50 people died in the Bahamas after the category 5 slow moving hurricane stuck to the islands. Thousands of people have become homeless.
