High school student with autism crowned prom king

The prom night for one student with autism became one he would never forget.

The touching moment was caught on camera at a Nevada high school's prom. Edgar was declared prom king, and the group of teenagers at the venue erupted in cheers.

Another student, Shaun, reportedly stepped down from the honor, requesting that Edgar take his place.

The room lit up with smiles and phones as the newly-crowned king and queen took the dance floor.
