WATCH: Mother of Cancer Patient Pleads At China Coronavirus Checkpoint For Her Daughter's Passage

'Please, take my daughter. I don’t need to go past,' she told officers. 'Please, just let my daughter go past.'

A mother pleaded with police to let her cancer-diagnosed daughter cross a checkpoint set up to prevent the spread of a coronavirus in China.

Lu Yuejin, 50, from a village in Hubei province wished for her 26-year-old daughter, Hu Ping, to cross the Jiujiang Yangtze River Bridge on Feb. 1 to get treatment in China’s Jiangxi province, Reuters reported.

“My daughter needs to go to [a] hospital in Jiujiang,” said Lu, a farmer. “She needs to have her treatment, but they won’t let us through.”

“Please, take my daughter. I don’t need to go past. … Please, just let my daughter go past,” she said.

The two eventually made it through.

“All I want to do is save her life,” Lu said.
