The 92-year-old husband, Feng Ming, was originally sent to intensive care after suffering heart failure.

Sadly, his condition deteriorated and more of his organs began failing, before he sustained a lung infection.

Feng ended up not being able to talk, and was being kept alive by a life support machine.

Knowing that he was nearing the end of his life, his family chose to stop therapy and bring him home. Though, he had one final desire before leaving hospital – he wanted to see his wife, to whom he’d been married for 66 years.

Zhang Ping, Feng’s 95-year-old wife, had also been admitted to the same hospital, and was staying on another floor receiving treatment for a fractured femur.
