Powerful image of a dad holding his sick son in the shower has gone viral

Heather Whitten has shared the picture of her husband Thomas embracing this little boy Fox taken some years ago.

And despite it being removed by Facebook more than once for apparently violating its photograph rules, it’s still been gleaned a massive response from parents and others across the world. Heather and Thomas live with their children – twins Fox and Persephone, Lillian, and Leena – in Southern Arizona.

Whitten, herself a photographer , recalls on her Facebook page that she took the photograph in November 2014 after little Fox, then aged almost one, had an attack of vomiting and diarrhoea.

She explains that he would later be taken to hospital with salmonella poisoning But before that, in an effort to soothe him, her husband Thomas took Fox in his arms
