A young boy has brought good fortune to his family and school after he was captured by CCTV in his community studying under a streetlight.
Good News Network reports that Víctor Martín Angulo Córdoba from Peru resorted to doing his homework under the streetlight because his family's home lacked electricity.
Victor's determined effort caught the eye of many persons after it went viral including the city's Mayor Arturo Fernández Bazán.
After locating the lad's home, Arturo learnt that the boy's family home couldn't get electricity because his mum didn't have the money to pay as well as the fact that she lacked documents to prove ownership of the house.
The mayor consequently assisted the family in restoring electricity into their home.
