A woman, Sandy Hamilton, who hails from Minnesota, US, took to Facebook on Sunday to share a heart-warming photo in a time when the world needed it the most.

With the coronavirus spreading fear and distancing people from each other, one man found a way to see his father.

His dad lives in an assisted living home and is not allowed to leave or receive visitors due to the Covid-19 virus.

However, the unidentified young man came up with a unique way to still see his dad. He took a camping chair, sat outside his father's window and the father-son-duo talked on the phone.

Hamilton captioned the photo:

"My assisted living is on lockdown so he comes every day to see his dad and they talk through the phone, sweetest thing ever. Consent was giving to post on social media."
