The emotional moment a daughter offered her father one last shot of Bundaberg Rum before he passed away in the hospital was captured on video.
While her father lay in a bed in the palliative care unit hooked up to tubes, Anne was sitting with her mother.
Then Ms. Anne opened a can of her father’s preferred beverage and recorded herself using a syringe to measure a little shot.
She states in the video, “I arrived ready for the sendoff.” Give him a tiny taste right here.
They will give him one more drink, her mother explains as she leans closer to the bed.
Before Ms. Anne and her mother laugh, her father stirs and gives a gentle head nod.
Hell absolutely, replies Ms. Anne. “Hell yes!”
A video of the tragic event was posted to TikTok, where it has received over 317,000 views.
The caption reads, “One last drink with dad before his spirit returned to the universe.” Until we run into each other again, old man. I cherish you.
Users on social media have praised the family’s deeds.
“Everyone deserves to die with relatives like this.” One individual wrote, “I’m so sad for your loss.”
As a former palliative care nurse, someone else commented: “This absolutely makes me heart so happy – cheers grandad.”
Some people on social media questioned Ms. Anne’s ability to carry alcohol into the hospital.
Ms. Anne replied that she had hidden the can in her jacket, shut the door behind her, and then taken the final shot.
