CEDAR CITY, Utah — A Utah dad is going viral for the way he handled his daughter’s accident at school.

On Friday, 6-year-old Valerie accidentally wet her pants at school. So when her dad, Ben Sowards, heard the news, he knew he had to do something.

Sowards decided to splash some water on his pants before leaving the house to sport his own “accident.”

And when Sowards showed up at the school, he asked his daughter if he could borrow her backpack to cover up his.

Valerie’s older sister, Lucinda, captured the moment and shared it on Twitter. As of Tuesday afternoon, the tweet had more than 63,000 retweets and more than 255,000 likes.

Lucinda told WTVT that she is the oldest of 11 children in the Sowards household, many of whom are foster kids.

They are even adopting four children this week. Safe to say they’re getting a great dad.
