Timberwolves big man Karl Anthony-Towns has taken to YouTube to detail the heartbreaking lead-up to the death of his mother, Jackie Cruz-Towns, who sadly passed away with Covid-19 in April.
In the video, Towns spoke of the time he spent with her in hospital, and the moments leading up to her passing.
“At that moment [in hospital] I pulled the plug and just let her pass,” Towns said.
“They [the doctors] told me she may be alive [for] another hour, maybe two.”
Towns said that the final moments of her life were shared virtually with family, who laughed and told stories to one another.
“She was sent off with laughter,” Towns continued.
