Watch the powerful moment metal fan with cerebral palsy crowdsurfs at music festival

A heart-warming video featuring a metal fan with cerebral palsy crowd surfing at Resurrection Fest Vivero, Spain, has gone viral.

The inspirational moment was captured by multiple fans while watching Arch Enemy perform.

The fan, Alex Dominguez, 19, was lifted in his wheelchair by dozens of fellow music lovers during the Swedish group’s performance.

Speaking to the Huffington Post, the young law student reflected on the moment, saying: “It was a rush of energy, adrenaline, excitement, joy, happiness. A dream come true; I had this idea for a long time to see my favourite groups from up here.”

Photographer Daniel Cruz managed to capture the iconic image, which was shared thousands of times over social media. The act and the crowd were widely praised by groups as a powerful statement of inclusion.

“It’s great that, although some see difficulties, other see solutions and joys like that”. One young woman tweeted.

Even Arch Enemy, the band performing at the time, posted: “Arch Enemy legions just being awesome as usual at @ResurrectionESP in Spain” on their Twitter page.

Since the festival performance, Alex’s family have also thanked the fans for their efforts in making Alex’s experience unforgettable.

On his recent social media fame, Alex wants to motivate other people with disabilities to also want to go to concerts, saying: “I want to serve as an example so that other people like me, in a wheelchair, will be encouraged to go to festivals and concerts….and to fly through the air.”
