YAZOO CITY, Miss. (WLS) -- A 17-year-old created something to allow some nursing home residents to safety hug their loved ones.
The teen created "hugging booths" as part of his Eagle Scout project.
Plastic protects family members from potentially spreading a virus, but still allows for touch.
One woman cried tears of joy at being able to give her youngest son a hug.
"I hadn't hugged him in six weeks... but he's my baby," she said.
The teen built each building in the Mississippi nursing home its own hugging booth.
