Shaq loves the kids, so this isn’t a surprise at all.

The Diesel is doing his part to help ease the pain for a Georgia family struck by tragedy, after 13-year-old Malachi Hemphill was showing off a gun on Instagram Live when it accidentally went off.

Shaq heard the news, and actually visited the family’s home in Atlanta Thursday night and offered to pay for Malachi’s services.

The NBA legend says he wants to help the family deal with the tragedy.
