Former NBA Star Shaquille O’Neal, also known as Shaq, has continued to bless families who are suffering in tragic times.

A teenager accidentally shot and killed himself last Wednesday on Instagram Live, leaving his family in complete despair.

Shaq offered to cover all of the teen’s funeral costs. He stated:

“No mother should have to go through this. I can only imagine the pain that she and all of Malachi’s family must be feeling. I just wanted to do what I could to help them at such a terrible time.”

The young boy’s godmother responded, “We just broke down and started crying because Malachi didn’t have any insurance. We weren’t prepared to bury him this young. We didn’t have insurance for him. So to have that from Shaquille O’Neal, it was a blessing and very touching, and we appreciate everything he does for the community.”

Earlier this year, Shaq also blessed the family of a 5-year-old girl who survived a dog attack. The little girl lost an ear and her friend, who was also attacked by the dog, unfortunately did not survive.

Shaq purchased and delivered new furniture and other home items to the family.
