ROCHESTER, N.Y. — A TikTok video featuring an EMT tailgating outside the hospital while his sister was in labor has gone viral.

Rochester AMR EMT Andrew Dill wasn’t allowed in this hospital to support his sister during labor due to COVID restrictions.

“I had my dog and I had the day off, so I figured why not make a tailgate out of it,” Dill told WROC. “I protect and take care of the ones I love, so that was pretty easy, she needed that kind of moment,” Dill said.

In the video, which has millions of views, Dill holds a sign that says “Push harder.”
