A terminally ill zoo worker got a goodbye kiss from a giraffe after he was wheeled in to see the zoo animals one last time.

Mario had worked as a cleaner at the Rotterdam Zoo in Netherlands for about 25 years.

He has a terminal brain tumor and had one wish -- to say goodbye to the animals he helped take care of.

The Dutch Ambulance Wish Foundation brought the 54-year-old to the zoo on a stretcher to see the animals. That's when one of the zoo's giraffes reached down and gave him with a kiss.
