"Look what I got for Christmas!" Vietnamese six-year-old operates a real digger

While others of his age have barely graduated from the sandpit, this Vietnamese six-year-old is shifting sand with a real digger.

Nam from Hai Duong has been operating excavators since he was four under the tutelage of his father, a professional digger driver.

In this clip, which was taken last year, Nam shows his younger brother the ropes.

Nam's father insists the boy is safe behind the controls and only lets him operate the machinery on private property.
