104-Year-Old WWII Vet Beats Covid-19 In Time For Birthday


Major Wooten who repaired bomb-damaged trains in France during world war II recently recovered from a fight with COVID-19 just in time to mark his 104th birthday.

Holley Wooten McDonald, His granddaughter, said He was physically drained and a little fuzzy mentally after battling the new coronavirus but appears to be on the mend.

“I’m just thankful that they were able to treat him so quickly and we were able to get him tested,” said McDonald, adding: “It’s amazing that a 104-year-old survived COVID.”

Madison Hospital shared a video of Wooten wearing a face mask and waving while workers sang “Happy birthday dear Pop Pop” as he was discharged in a wheelchair decorated with balloons on Tuesday, two days before his actual birthday.
