QUEEN CREEK, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) - The Queen Creek fire department paid a visit to one of its own today, surprising a colleague outside his hospital window with his wife and son.
Queen Creek firefighters from crew L411 made the special visit to a fellow firefighter who has recently been battling COVID-19 in ICU. To brighten his spirits, his team delivered his wife and son to his hospital window using the firetruck ladder.
According to the fire department's Facebook page, the firefighter spent some time in ICU, but now he is finally beginning to feel better and is walking around his room. The fireman said the hardest part about fighting the virus was being away from his family and only being able to see them on FaceTime.
In the photos, the fireman is seen pressed up against the glass talking to his family. His family was happy as well, with his son giving a "thumbs up" to the camera!
