Victor Torres, 57, from Chula Vista, his mom, dad, and wife contracted the virus in May. Victor Torres and his mom died of COVID-19 in less than two months.
Victor Torres’s wife, Lorena Torres, says there are no words to describe what happened. She says the nurses were like “angels” and thanks them for holding her husband’s hand as she talked to him via FaceTime as he was dying alone in the hospital. She said at that point the nurses were family.
“It frustrated me that I couldn’t help him, even though I tried. I think it was just very frightening at first, but I always had hope that he was just gonna go to the hospital, get better and then come back,” said Victoria Torres, Victor Torres’s daughter.
