To have and to hold: Tear-jerking moment dying man, 92, is granted his last wish to hold hands with his wife of 66 years as the couple meet for the last time two hours before he dies
A picture of an elderly couple holding hands in hospital beds has moved millions of people in China.
The dying husband, 92, said it was his last wish to meet his wife, 95, before he went back to his home and waited to die, according to Chinese media.
The man, surnamed Feng from Ningbo city, reportedly passed away at home two hours after the touching reunion .
The couple, who had been married for 66 years, were both being treated at the Yingzhou People's Hospital in Ningbo, reported People's Daily Online.
Mr Feng suffered from serious heart diseases and stayed at the Intensive Care Unit on the third floor; while his wife, who had bone fractures, was treated on the 14th floor, said the same report, citing Qianjiang Evening News.
The elderly man wished to die at home peacefully, so he and his family requested the hospital to stop his treatment and discharge him.
