Paramedics in Queensland, Australia gave a palliative care patient one last visit to the beach, twice in one week, and "she was just ecstatic", paramedic Graeme Cooper told ABC News.
According to the Queensland Ambulance Service, the story, which it said was too good not to share, was told by Helen Donaldson, the officer-in-charge of Hervey Bay.
"Tears were shed and the patient felt very happy", the Queensland Ambulance Service wrote.
"I thought the next best thing was I can get some ocean and bring it to her", Cooper said.
Kellan has shared that when she asked the patient about what was she was thinking, she replied that she was at peace and "everything's right".
'While we were down there, we let her look at everything'.
Dying woman's dream of beach visit fulfilled by Aussie paramedics
'I got a throw away vomit bag and filled it with salt water, she tasted it with her mouth, ' Mr Cooper said.
Looking back to the QAS' Facebook post, this thoughtful gesture is just another example of the selfless, life-changing work our paramedics do for people across the country every day.
Mr Cooper said the woman had lived with her husband by the beach in Hervey Bay.
In the comments section underneath the post, few other paramedics talked about their own similar experiences.
The ambulance crew chose to fulfill her wish, taking a diversion to Hervey Bay, where they took the stretcher as close as they dared to the water's edge.
It was then Graeme asked if she'd like to visit the beach to look at the ocean. A short time later the hardly licked ice cream fell to the floor.
