Lebanese media reports have brought the kind gesture of Professor Hassan Chamas under the spotlight, after he carried the baby of one of his students during a lecture.
The student happens to be a mother who is pursuing a masters degree and had to bring her child to class.
When the baby began crying, the 28-year-old lecturer tried to clam him down by carrying him so that the students could concentrate. Soon, the baby fell asleep serenely on the professor’s shoulder.
Chamas reportedly took to Facebook to comment on the incident, which he described as “one of his most beautiful lectures.”
“I am sure the baby absorbed a lot of the lesson, being very close to the professor,” he said jokingly.
The priceless moment garnered wide praise by social media users in Lebanon, who commended on the professor’s kindness toward his student.
