An Ambulance Wish Foundation decided to help him when they were called by charity. They transport terminally ill patients to places that are of personal significance for their final wishes. To make his dream come true and to see his old friends again, they took him in a specially equipped ambulance to the Zoo.
As soon as he approached the giraffes, something amazing happened. The animals got into the ambulance with Mario and stuck their heads out through the windows one by one.
With sad expressions in their eyes, they felt his pain and sadness, flattered him, kissed him and comforted him. In a summary of the day, foundation member Olaf Exoo said Mario had “licked and sniffed a lot,” adding that the last greetings from the other spectators had caused goosebumps. They realized that Mario had a feeling that he was not well.
Mario was lucky enough to say goodbye to his beloved animal friends and colleagues.
The Ambulance Wish Foundation uploaded the story to Facebook and it went viral, leaving many people heartbroken. The giraffes ability to feel their friend’s pain and their efforts to ease the pain melted people’s hearts. It really was a special moment for everyone.
