People can't stop poking fun at this dad who passed out in the delivery room

She's giving birth, and he can't even stand the sight of a needle.

Cody Johnson faints in the delivery room.

When you're the non-birthing parent in a delivery room, your job is to be strong and supportive. It’s not to faint while your significant other is going through one of the most painful experiences of her life.

Cody Johnson, the husband of new mom Corianne, failed on all fronts.

A viral video on TikTok with 13 million views shows Cody passed out on the delivery room floor while his wife prepares to give birth. After regaining consciousness, he was given a spot on the couch and a juice box, like a small child, to recuperate. All while his wife was hard at work bringing a child into this world.

That's why this story of a COVID patient returning to the hospital to thank—and apologize to—the medical staff who helped him offers a ray of hope that not all who are in denial will stay that way.

According to KOMO News, Richard Soliz hadn't known anyone who had gotten sick from the coronavirus. He had also fallen prey to misinformation on social media about the vaccine, so had chosen not to get vaccinated. Then he fell ill in late August, spiked a fever and found it difficult to breathe.

"That's when I really knew I was in a bad situation," Soliz said. "That's when I knew, hey, this is COVID. Man. I contracted the virus."
