Former U.S. President George H.W. Bush shaved his salt and pepper comb-over locks in solidarity with a 2-year-old boy who lost his hair from leukemia treatments, his office said in a statement.

美國前總統老布希的辦公室在一份聲明中指出,老布希剃掉了他那撮黑灰相間、刻意梳向一邊用來掩飾禿頭的頭髮,以聲援一名2歲大、因接受血癌治療而掉髮的男童。

Bush, 89, and members of his security detail, shaved their heads to support Patrick, the son of one of Bush’s security detail.

89歲的老布希及其安全小組全都剃光頭,以支持一名安全小組成員的兒子,派翠克。

Photos released by Bush’s office show 26 other security staff posing with Bush and Patrick, all of whom have only a light dust of peach fuzz atop their heads. The last name of the boy was withheld at the request of his family.

老布希辦公室發布的照片顯示,其他26名安全小組成員、老布希以及派翠克一起擺姿勢拍照,所有人頭頂上全都只剩下些許桃色短毛。應男童家屬要求,男童的姓氏予以保留。
