Toddler breaks down after meeting garbage collecting heroes

Don't worry about 2-year-old Quincy Kroner crying in the photo above. He's just happy he got to meet his heroes.

Quincy is a toddler from Cincinnati who is absolutely fascinated by garbage trucks. "Every Friday he knows they're coming," Ollie Kroner, Quincy's father, told ABC News. "From the moment he hears them from blocks away he runs to the window, climbs up on the couch and watches them." Quincy loves garbage trucks so much that he received one as a congratulatory gift after completing potty training.

The drivers are pretty fond of Quincy too, honking and waving every time they pass his home. "They've developed a kind of relationship through the window," Kroner said.

So when Quincy finally got the chance to meet his heroes, it proved a bit overwhelming, with the toddler crying as seen in the photo above.

"He was so excited leading up to it but then when the moment came he became undone," Kroner said. The dad also said the noise of the truck up close may have been louder than Quincy was expecting.

Still, Quincy was able to recover shortly after the image was taken. "I just don't think he thought it all the way through," Kroner told ABC News.
