I don't want to use a ventilator. Save it for the younger ones. I already had a good life. 

This was a statement by a 90-year-old coronavirus patient who died after refusing being put on artificial respirator.

Suzanne Hoylaerts

Based on further research from media outlets online, this 90-year-old woman is Suzanne Hoylaerts who died in Belgium due to coronavirus, COVID-19, after refusing being put on an artificial respirator.

Artificial respirators are crucial in helping the severely infected coronavirus patients to recover. Because these patients are unable to breathe on their own, an artificial respirator will pump oxygen into the lungs.

Suzanne, while on isolation, reportedly refused the breathing assistance telling the doctors, "Save it for the younger ones. I already had a good life."

This heroic act of Suzanne touched the hearts of many netizens admiring her for her self-less act. She sacrificed her own life to save younger lives.
