Young Girl Disconnects Her Grandpa’s Life Support To Plug In Her Phone’s Charger
She did it to send a WhatsApp message, saying that her grandpa is okay.
Ally Louia, a 26-year old girl went to the hospital yesterday to visit her grandpa, who was suffering from lung cancer. When the nurse and other family members weren’t present, the young girl decided to disconnect the life support from her grandpa, because she needed to charge her phone.
“Let’s see: my phone was at 1%, which can be described as a critical situation. Besides, my mother asked me to text her how my grandpa was doing right after getting to the hospital, so I had to do it”, Louia said in the defense.
Not only she sent a message to her mom, Ally decided to take some pictures of her grandma to upload them to Instagram. “No way, I just did it to prove them that he was okay. And yes, it’s true that he was turning blue, but I thought that that was an Instagram filter”, Ally said, referring to the moment when the old man started suffering the lack of oxygen.
“People could have also warned me, instead of just tapping ‘Like'”, she complained.
Fortunately, the old man could reach a control and call the infirmary, and doctors got there on time to help him. “They freaked out when they realized that the respirator was turned off. I asked them if there was another socket in the room but they didn’t answer. I think it’s unfair that there was only one socket”, said Louia.
After the incident, Ally’s family is completely angered. “I understand your anger and I share it. But we gotta look for solutions. We either buy one of those external batteries for my phone or we buy another one”, Ally concluded.
