“It is extremely doleful that my child cannot stay alive, and that would make him feel sad and cry. If we could donate his organs to help another family, it would be something my child would be happy to see," the father said.

The father had hoped to donate all the organs of his son, but in the and only donated his corneas due to legal issues concerning the donation of organs by foreigners, according to Focus Taiwan.
The young man, surnamed Pham, from Vietnam is an overseas student at Minghsin University of Science and Technology in Hsinchu County, Taiwan. In May, in a visit to his friend, he accidentally fell down from a building’s balcony and sank into a deep coma. His school and friends took care of him.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, until June 10, the father arrived in Taiwan. However, he was placed in home isolation for 14 days and could not see his son.

He also thanked his son for “having tried hard to stay alive” until he was out of the quarantine facility to see him for the last time.
Pham passed away on July 2, said the father.
