A son scaled high walls of a hospital to see his mother for one last time before she succumbed to coronavirus.
Images of Jihad Al-Suwaiti, from the town of Beit Awa in the West Bank, Palestine sitting by the Intensive Care Unit’s (ICU) window of Hebron State Hospital where she was being treated for COVID-19 have gone viral.
According to reports, 73-year-old Rasmi Suwaiti, died on Thursday evening, shortly after receiving an unexpected visit from her 30-year-old son. The son would wait by the window every night to watch his mother.
