A tired but devoted father in Pennsylvania, US was pictured sleeping under the bed of his son who was admitted to hospital with asthma.
The dad, Andre Palmer, had worked three shifts throughout the night on July 5 last year but thought he should be with his sick son instead of going home.
Palmer's wife, Amy, took the picture of him curled up under their son's crib and shared it on Facebook, where it has since gone viral with more than 46,000 "reactions" and 4,000 shares.
In her post, Amy hailed Palmer's devotion to being by his son's side and declared him winner of the father of the year award.
She later told a local reporter that their son felt much better within a day and had been discharged from hospital.
