Pictures of doctor soothing toddler before surgery go viral online

A set of heart-warming photos in which a doctor holds a two-year-old girl on his lap outside an operating room have gone viral on China's social media.

The photos, taken at a hospital in Hangzhou, in East China's Zhejiang province, show a doctor trying to calm down the crying toddler with a cartoon app on his cellphone ahead of her heart surgery.

The doctor, named Shi Zhuo, is the father of a 6-year-old girl.

Shi said the little patient kept crying after entering the operating room. To calm down the little girl, he held her and showed her a cartoon app on his cell phone to comfort her. The 2-year-old was soothed by the app, allowing the surgery to proceed.

The doctor's move touched many Chinese netizens and won their praise.
