The old man wraps his arms and clothes around her body, unwilling to let her go. “I’m not cold; I just want to hold her a little longer for the last time. I won’t be able to do it again!” he said. Passersby extended a hand to help after the old lady collapsed.
The old man unbuttons his jacket to hold his wife closer. He refused to get up although he had been sitting there for half an hour. “Let me be with her a little longer, the car will arrive soon,” he said.
Witnessing the old man’s stubbornness, bystanders and police officers together lift him up and place the cardboard under him and the styrofoam under his legs to keep him warm. A passerby gave him a pair of gloves too.
