Over the weekend, pictures of a doctor comforting his two-year-old patient like she was his own daughter went viral online with netizens proclaiming him a real-life “Baymax.”
The two-year-old had been crying nervously in the surgery room of a Zhejiang hospital without her parents there to make her feel better. Shi Zhuo, the little girl’s surgeon, took the initiative and went over to try to calm her down by showing her funny videos on his smartphone.
Turns out Dr. Shi knows a thing or two as he has a six-year-old daughter of his own and the clips worked like a charm. Soon the girl had stopped crying and started smiling.
“In the operating room, doctors often comfort patients with kind hugs and words,” Doctor Shi told People’s Daily. “This kind of scene is very normal.”
Yesterday, we reported on how netizens hearts had also had their hearts melted by seeing images of “Umbrella Dad.” At heart, they are a sentimental bunch.
