"Angel Nurse" Breastfeeds Infant During Surgery

(Photos: Sina)

General anesthesia can be dangerous to young children--especially babies. So sometimes surgery on infants is done with local anesthesia or just sedation. That became a problem for one baby in Shenzhen, China. He began crying and squirming during an operation. To calm him, a nurse picked him up and began breastfeeding him. This soothed him enough that the surgeon could complete the operation. Shanghaiist reports:

According to Sina, the nurse named Li Baoxia didn't hesitate for a moment to help the crying baby. After drinking, the infant quietly lay down in the nurse's arm and the surgeons were able to complete the operation. Everyone present remarked that it was an incredibly moving experience.

After the surgery was completed successfully, the baby's father came to thank Li. "Thank you! You didn't only treat my child, you also nursed him!" he said. "As a father, you have my endless gratitude. You are an angel nurse!"
