Christopher Warner, a 10 year old from Maryland with Down syndrome, loves Maroon 5’s Adam Levine so much, he made the singer a fan video:

When Hot 99.5’s Kane Show saw the video, the station arranged for Werner, his mom and his teachers, to go backstage after the band’s show at the Verizon Center in Washington D.C., The Today Show reports.

But when the youngster met his hero, he had a panic attack and had to lay down on the floor. The pop star did the same and suggested everyone follow suit. So they just hung out there, took pictures and had a grand old time.

Christopher was so overwhelmed he had a panic attack so @adamlevine @maroon5 @internjohnradio laid down to take a pic
