Mexico City, Mexico, Feb 18, 2016 / 14:09 pm America/Denver (CNA).
Sabrina Puig is eight years old. Due to a rare condition, she only has half a heart. But when Pope Francis passed by, she ran to him.
Sabrina and her mother, Karla Robles, were behind the crowd barrier outside the apostolic nunciature in Mexico City when the Pope visited there Sunday.
When the Pope left the nunciature, the people began to push forward. Sabrina saw her chance.
“Then she began to run towards the Pope,” Karla said.
Sabrina passed through the security fence outside of the apostolic nunciature in Mexico City and ran towards Pope Francis. She hugged him forcefully.
