Carlos, a deaf-blind Brazil fan, got to experience the 2014 World Cup thanks to a kind act by some friends.

Helio Fonseca de Araujo shared the video of he and Regiane Pereira creating a mock pitch with elevated lines so Carlos could follow along with Brazil's first game of the 2014 World Cup.

Judging from his reaction at the end, Carlos was thoroughly appreciative of the opportunity his friends gave him.
