The photo went viral, attracting more than 2 million Facebook views, WTTG reports.

Heather Nelson, Royce Thompson’s mother, explained she had dropped her son off late at his elementary school in Santa Fe, Texas.

He was about to open the door when he suddenly paused.

At first, his mother had no idea what he was doing and pleaded with him to quickly get inside.

“I couldn’t really tell what he was doing and I was saying ‘Royce..go..go’ as kids walked around him,” Nelson wrote on Facebook.

“Well he didn’t budge and I thought what is this child doing?”

When a police officer approached Nelson and explained what he was doing, both of them were stunned.
