When Lynn Savage's daughter was in critical condition, she refused to leave the hospital in case something happened. As a result, she was arrested and jailed.
Nothing can compare to a mother's love and hinder her from caring for her kids. So when Lynn Savage was told that she couldn't stay in the hospital with her daughter, she refused to leave.
Lynn, 70, has an adult daughter who suffered from a stroke and needed brain surgery. As a non-verbal patient in critical condition, Lynn didn't want to leave her helpless daughter's side.

After surgery, the doctor asked Lynn to stay with her daughter in the ICU to calm her daughter down when she awoke. But when visiting hours passed, she was asked to leave. Lynn said:
"I could not in good conscience and good heart leave her bedside not knowing how she was going to make it through the night voluntarily."
With not many options left, Lynn requested the nurse to contact the doctor, hoping he would give a special permit for her to stay. However, the nurse refused to make the call and got security instead.

Due to the COVID-19 protocols, hospitals had strict visiting hours, and no one was an exception to that rule. So when security officers came, they begged the mom to leave so things wouldn't escalate, but she stood by her decision and stayed put for her daughter.
Lynn does not regret her actions and knows that she is only a mom caring for her daughter.
Eventually, the police got involved and explained that Lynn's violation had consequences. The sheriff also reasoned out with Lynn, and although she understood that she was breaching protocol, the fear of losing her daughter was too strong.

"They were also very polite," she said of the officers. "They kept trying to get me to leave, and I said I'm not leaving; I'm not going to leave my daughter's side." They later escorted Lynn out in handcuffs for trespassing, and she spent about 24 hours in jail.
Lynn completely understood why the police were called and cooperated with them after. As a retired Stark County, Ohio Sheriff's Deputy who served for 20 years, Lynn knew that the officers were only doing their job.
Fortunately, Lynn's daughter is still alive and slowly recovering from surgery. Lynn, however, was banned from the hospital following the incident.
In her place, a family member came to watch over her daughter. But Lynn does not regret her actions and knows that she is only a mom caring for her daughter.
The pandemic has restricted many things, such as hospital visitation, which resulted in patients suffering without companions. Sadly, many have also died due to COVID-19.
Previously, father-of-five Antwone Rivers passed away due to complications from COVID-19. A ventilator kept him alive at the hospital but his organs slowly deteriorated as time passed.
The doting dad is remembered by his family and friends as an amazing husband, father, and person. Hopefully, the situation continues to get better with the vaccine rollout.
