COVID-19: Elderly woman breaks out of old age home to meet daughter

Amidst the coronavirus pandemic, a 101-year-old woman has managed to escape from an old-age home in Germany because she wished to meet her daughter on her birthday. According to reports, the elderly woman escaped via the emergency exit of her old-age home after tricking her caretakers. But the elderly woman lost her way after exiting from the old age home and was then intercepted by the police.

Unplanned meeting

As per reports, the elderly woman after being picked up by the police told them that she lived with her daughter in north Germany. The cops were reportedly sceptical of the woman’s claims and took her home where the daughter informed the police that her mother had been transferred to the old-age home two weeks ago.

The elderly woman was not allowed to enter her daughter’s home but was able to meet her daughter through the window of the patrol car after which the woman was escorted back to the old age home.
