Balloon floats from son's coffin to grieving mom

-
A video that as of Thursday had been viewed nearly five million times on Facebook, shows a white balloon float towards a distraught mother.
 
The balloon was near the coffin of her son who had died from cancer at the age of seven.
 
The balloon gets very close to the mother and she hugs it as it moves closer and around her before floating away.
 
According to published reports, the video was shot last year at a funeral home during the wake for the boy in the Philippines.
 
Viewers have commented many times saying the balloon is the boy's ghost attempting to comfort his grieving mother.
