A photo of an exhausted father sleeping underneath his child’s hospital crib after working an overnight shift has gone viral.
The child’s mother, Amy Palmer, posted the image on Facebook Tuesday and it has received more than 10,000 likes.
Palmer wrote that her husband Andre arrived at York Hospital Pediatrics in Pennsylvania early in the morning and found her asleep. Rather than wake her, he decided to sleep under the crib instead.
“I took the picture because I thought what a selfless thing for my husband to do. He could have went home after work, he could have asked me to get up,” Palmer wrote on Facebook. “I didn't leave him there, I quickly got him up into the bed/chair I was sleeping in, but not before taking the picture that I felt spoke volumes about the good person, husband, and father he truly is.”
She added that the child is doing better and is at home resting.
