Cranes reunited Belgian families with elderly relatives
A Belgian maintenance company with a fleet of cranes is using the machines to reunite families with relatives living in high-rise care homes. Residents of nursing homes have been isolated from their families for weeks to protect them from Covid-19, and while those living on ground floors have been able to chat to loved ones through windows, this hasn’t been possible for residents living higher up. Offering a solution to that is Tristan Van den Bosch, manager of Group-f maintenance company, which has given families in the city of Watermael-Boitsfort a lift by raising them to the upper floors to see their relatives. “We’re happy that we have been able to help people,” Van den Bosch told ABC News.
