CINCINNATI (FOX19) -

Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley will honor two city sanitation workers who posed with a toddler in a photo that went viral nationwide.

Quincy Kroner met his local heroes, the neighborhood garbage workers, last month. The 2-year-old had been captivated by garbage men and wanted to show them his new toy truck.

But when the time came to pose for the photo, little Quincy couldn't keep it together. The result was an adorable moment that spread across the internet.

Mark Davis and Eddie Washington crouched next to Quincy and were all smiles as the toddler had an apparent meltdown.

Davis and Washington will be honored for their customer service and courtesy, according to the mayor's office.
