Son gets wrapped in plastic just to hug frontliner dad on his birthday

A young child had to wrap himself in plastic just so he could give his frontliner father a hug on his birthday. 

Lapu-Lapu City Disaster Risk Reduction Management chief Nagiel Bañacia shared the heartbreaking photo of Berto Makabali, one of the supervisors at the Nerve Command Center of the city, and his 6-year-old son in a Facebook post on Thursday.

The post has since warmed netizens’ hearts.

 

Bañacia shared that Makabili arrived home late at night on his birthday last Wednesday, April 22, after a long day of transporting positive COVID-19 patients. 

That same night, his longing son requested for a hug to greet him a happy birthday and celebrate after with a simple dinner.

Similar other challenging and heart-wrenching cases also happened with other frontliner parents as social distancing takes a toll during the global pandemic.
