Why are there so many people? Who is this teacher? Do I call her mum now? I wanna go home. )';

This is probably what happened to a seven-year-old boy who started his first day of primary school

In a one-minute long video uploaded on 1 March, the little boy can be seen scampering down a kampung road surrounded by palm oil trees.

According to New Straits Times, the incident took place in Jengka 4, Maran, Pahang on Monday, the first day of school for the year 2021.

The video was filmed by a security guard who was chasing after the boy.

Panting for air, the security guard calls out 'adik, adik, adik' repeatedly in an attempt to get the boy's attention and convince him to stop running.

Do not underestimate the boy's short legs because he really gave the security guard a difficult chase

"Hey, hey, hey... there are police there. Let pak cik send you back," the security guard shouts on the winding road.

Of course, the security guard's offer fails to deter the boy, who is determined to run home on foot.

When it becomes apparent that the security guard cannot keep up with the boy, a kapcai speeds past the security guard and stops beside the fugitive student

It is unknown who the motorcyclist is. When the camera gets closer to the boy, he can be heard crying and screaming for his mother.

China Press reported that the woman on the motorcycle is a teacher from the student's school.

At the time of writing, the video has gone viral with over 23,000 likes and 8,600 shares

Thousands of netizens left comments saying that they were amazed by the boy's running speed.

"What's up with this kid? The first day of Year One, but he can already fly," read a top comment.

"You made the old man breathless, boy. Don't run too fast," said a Facebook user, while another added, "Only with this can make the right atmosphere for the first day of school."

Meanwhile, one netizen commended the pak cik for filming the incident.

"Congratulations, pak cik. Even though you were running after the boy, you kept your camera focused on the situation," the netizen said in jest.
