Policeman Cries On Duty After Finding Out Parents Were Put Into Coma Due To Covid-19
Netizens are sending their wishes and prayers to an anonymous policeman after a viral TikTok video showed him crying on duty after realising that his parents would be put into a medically induced coma due to Covid-19.
The heartbreaking video showed the traffic police officer sitting in a parked car by the side of the road as he wiped his tears and tried to compose himself. The caption urged viewers to pray for the man as his parents have been "put to sleep".
The procedure is common for Category 4 and 5 Covid-19 patients who are in critical condition after their organs and lungs are too weak for them to breathe normally. These patients need to be sedated before they are placed on ventilators, where a breathing tube is inserted into their mouths and down their windpipes.
The pipe helps to pump oxygen into the patient's lungs and extract carbon dioxide out to help them breathe. Depending on the patient's condition, some people might feel slight discomfort while others may feel too weak and uncomfortable that they need to be put into a coma.
It is never easy seeing others go through a process as excruciating as this, let alone when it's happening to your own parents. We pray that the police officer in the video will receive good news soon and his parents will be blessed with a speedy recovery.
And to the rest of us, please stay safe and get vaccinated to protect yourself and your loved ones from this virus.
