‘Absolutely despicable’: Photo of elderly woman face-down in pillow at nursing home sparks outrage.

According to Holter, “Julia Wiggins, a local pastor, posted the photos to Facebook on Tuesday showing 80-year-old Esther Brown ‘face down into a soft pillow gasping for breath and strangling on her own saliva,’ she wrote.”

The article goes on to state that, “Wiggins urged people with family members in nursing homes to keep tabs on them often.” As she indicated, “’People please keep a close check on any of your loved ones if they are in these places, she wrote.”
