(Meredith) - Two toddlers are melting hearts online after a video showed them hugging each other on a New York City sidewalk.   

The viral video shows Maxwell and Finnegan, both 2 years old, running to greet each other with pure joy.

Maxwell's father, Michael Cisneros, recorded the video and uploaded it to Facebook on Sunday to show everyone the "beautiful" moment. He said the boys have known each other for about a year.

“They just took off towards each other, and I got my phone out as quickly as I could to record it,” Cisneros told WPIX. “They are just too cute together."

"With all the racism and hate going on, I just think it’s a really beautiful video," he added.

As of Tuesday morning, the viral Facebook video had more than 116,000 views and counting.
