HONOLULU — A Honolulu paramedic reunited with her young son on Tuesday after being separated from him for months due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Honolulu EMS Paramedic Shara Molina surprised her son Aiden, 7, after taking time off of work last week and being tested for COVID-19 to ensure she did not have the virus, according to KITV.
Molina's son had been in the care of her parents, who are cancer patients, and Molina said she chose to stay separated from her family to protect them the risk of exposure.
Molina said she tries to set a good example for her son and that he sees her and his father, who is a police officer, as heroes, which motivated her to continue working despite not being able to be with her loved ones.
After months of separation because of COVID-19, a Honolulu Emergency Medical Services paramedic reunited with her 7-year-old son Tuesday afternoon.
