A man who was only given 24 hours to live after being diagnosed with COVID-19 has been reunited with his mother.
Man given 24 hours to live reunites with his Mum:
Ben McCafferty, 34, was discharged from hospital in West Yorkshire on Saturday. He had been battling the virus for more than 2 weeks.
His Mum, Diane Margerison, was waiting for him after not being allowed to stay with him. This due to the strict lock-down conditions that have been imposed.
It was not Ben’s first fight for life. He was diagnosed with Meningitis at 13 years old and was on life support for 3 weeks. This left him partially paralysed. His Mum said ” please do not be frightened to admit yourself to hospital if you have the symptoms. People do recover, Ben is living proof of that”.
