- An adorable photo has gone viral and warmed hearts across the world
- It shows a young man chatting with his dad on a phone while sitting outside on a camping chair
- The elderly man had been subjected to lockdown due to the coronavirus but his son still makes time to see him
A woman, Sandy Hamilton, who hails from Minnesota, US, took to Facebook on Sunday, March 15, to share a heart-warming photo in a time when the world needs it the most.
With the coronavirus spreading fear and distancing people from each other, one man found a way to see his father.
His dad lives in an assisted living home and is not allowed to leave or receive visitors due to the Covid-19 virus.
However, the unidentified young man came up with a unique way to still see his dad. He took a camping chair, sat outside his father's window and the father-son-duo talked on the phone.
Hamilton captioned the photo:
"My assisted living is on lockdown so he comes every day to see his dad and they talk through the phone, sweetest thing ever. Consent was given to post on social media."
