In one of his last films, which has not yet been released, Paul Walker played the husband of a woman who unexpectedly dies in childbirth.
Walker is famed for his roles in “The Fast and the Furious,” and tragically died in a car crash earlier this month. In the film, his character’s daughter, born five weeks early, is hooked up to a ventilator which is her only chance of survival until she is strong enough to breathe on her own.
When Hurricane Katrina hits the city, the hospital loses power and is evacuated, but Walker’s character stays behind to preserve his daughter’s life. He keeps the ventilator going manually, and risks his life to ensure that she receives the care she needs to survive. Walker’s character defies all odds and gives completely of himself to the point of self-sacrifice so that his daughter can have a chance at staying alive and becoming healthy.
