An ambulance crew took a detour so a dying woman could say a final goodbye to a beach in Australia.
Hervey Bay Officer in Charge Helen Donaldson said the woman's dying wish was to visit the beach again, a special place where she and her husband bought a house.
Queensland Ambulance Service (QAS) then fulfilled her wish by taking her to the Queensland's Hervey Bay, north of the Sunshine Coast and the picture of her sitting near the ocean on a wheelchair was posted on the ambulance service's Facebook page where it went viral.
A QAS spokesperson wrote in a Facebook post that 'sometimes it is not the drugs/training/skills - sometimes all you need is empathy to make a difference'.
"I thought, if all these rocks weren't here I would get down to my jocks and take you into the ocean."
"This week we actually got called down there to bring her back to the hospital", he said. After her photo was posted online on Facebook, it rapidly spread, shared over 19,000 times in 36 hours, with over 59,000 "likes".
News.com.au reports the paramedic standing next to the patient in the "completely unscripted" moment was identified as Graeme Cooper. The ambulance crew was transporting the terminally ill woman to the palliative care unit at a Caloocan hospital.
The paramedic has since been identified as Graeme Cooper.
Cooper and the female patient were photographed as they were looking out over the waters at Hervey Bay.
The destination was Hervey Bay - a beach close to Fraser Island known for its whale-watching.
The patient told them she was at peace, and that everything was "right".
