A nurse struggled to deliver his final video message for loved ones, just hours before his death from COVID-19.
Sergio Humberto Padilla Hernandez created his emotional farewell for family members, ahead of time. While he held onto great hopes that he would soon recover, there was always an uncertainty.
During the video, the nurse repeatedly says. ‘I will recover, God willing. And we will move forward.” Meanwhile, he expressed that no matter what happens, the family will always keep an eye out in his best interests. He ends the message by saying, “I love you and you will always be in my heart forever.”
While recording the message, loved ones could clearly see how the nurse gasps for air. He has great difficulty in breathing as he tries to move on to the next sentence. But as determined as ever, he pulls through with the message in the end.
