A photo of a Pennsylvania father sleeping underneath his son’s hospital crib has gone viral.
According to WTXF-TV, Amy Palmer posted the photo of her husband, Andre Palmer, Tuesday morning at York Hospital Pediatrics in York, Pa.
"This is a picture of a hard working man dedicated to his family!!” Amy Palmer wrote. “After working all night third shift, he's right here with his son who is in the hospital. He's so tired but he's here!!”
“Father of the year award goes to Andre Palmer!” she added.
In a subsequent facebook post after the photo went viral, Palmer wrote that she is “overwhelmed” by the response.
“I took the picture because I thought what a selfless thing for my husband to do,” Palmer wrote. “He could have went home after work, he could have asked me to get up. I would have never imagined that it would have touched so many people.”
Palmer added that their son “is doing much better and is now at home resting.”
