Watch: Wheelchair-bound boy stands for anthem

- A tender moment was caught on camera as a Tennessee boy was determined to show his patriotism.

Avery Price, a 10-year-old who uses a wheelchair, managed to stand up for the singing of the national anthem.  The emotional scene took place ahead of the demolition derby at the Putnam County Fair on Sunday.

In the now-viral video, shared on Facebook by Leah Norris, price can be seen hanging on to his dad for support.  

Some Facebook users commented that Price's action needs to be shown to the NFL, which has been the center of controversy over many players taking a knee during the national anthem.
