A little schoolboy in Saudi Arabia collapsed and burst into crying after he was told by classmates that his brother died.

Friends then quickly told him that they were lying to him as an ‘April fool joke’ but he continued weeping, according to Sada newspaper.

“His teacher tried to calm him down. He gave him a long hug until he calmed down and realised that it was a joke,” the paper said, adding that the teacher did not know he was being filmed for social networks when he hugged the boy.
