'Miracle boy' has simple way of healing the sick

A boy named "Santino," who is said to be miraculous, has a simple way of healing people who are sick. See how he does it in this viral video.

Field reporter Jake Yakan of local station K37 TV said the alleged miracle boy from Pagadian City was surrounded by Digos City residents when he came to the public park.

As can be seen in the video, "Santino" lets those with illnesses hold or touch him while he is in a prone position.

According to Yakan, the healing process involves prayer, faith and repentance of sins.

The boy's mother said "Santino" started to heal people when he was only 3 years old.

According to her, she was doing the laundry when the boy approached her and said "Mama, amot (gamot) ako sakit tao... buong mundo ma ako hahanapin tao (Mom, I want to heal people. People from all over the world will look for me."

In an interview, "Santino" claimed he got his healing power from the Santo Niño (Holy Child Jesus), who sometimes allegedly appears before him at night.

Yakan also interviewed some individuals who gave testimonies confirming that they were healed.

The miracle boy's family reportedly admitted they are having a hard time coping with their daily needs as they had to give up their respective jobs, but said they are happy to serve the public in spite of the challenges.
