His family heard a loud boom … and his mother and sister found him in his bedroom in a pool of blood. He died Wednesday.

Shaq heard the sad news and 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.

The boy’s grandmother said the family didn’t have insurance for Malachi, so Shaq’s gesture is “a blessing and very touching” and she appreciates everything he does for the community.
