Earlier this year, former offensive lineman for the University of Maryland football team Ellis McKennie III made headlines after opening up about his dad’s fight against coronavirus.

According to McKennie III, his dad tested positive for COVID-19 on March 21. His condition was so fragile that he was placed on a ventilator and in a 15-day medically induced coma.

Ellis McKennie Sr. spent almost a month at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center Hanover. To make matters worse, his family couldn’t even visit him due to hospital restrictions.

Against all odds, and although his family felt helpless, McKennie Sr. got better and was discharged from the hospital on April 13. The emotional moment he left the hospital was captured on camera.
