A video of a young Palestinian man who climbed the wall of a hospital to sit with his mum while she was sick with COVID-19 has gone viral.
The heartwarming video shows Jihad Al-Suwaiti, 30, who was determined to visit his mother Rasma Salema after she tested positive for coronavirus.
Video shows the devoted son scaling the walls of the intensive care unit of a hospital in Hebron in Palestine’s southern West Bank. Despite a ban on visitors in the hospital, Mr Al-Suwaiti used a drain pipe to climb the wall, before sitting on a window ledge looking into his mother’s hospital room.
Mr Al-Suwaiti was filmed then sitting and watching over his mother, who had COVID-19 and had also been living with leukaemia. The devoted son returned to sit with his mother every day until Ms Salema passed away last Thursday, according to Bored Panda.
