The mechanic is seen weeping as his child lies in the hospital bed battling deadly sepsis, and medics tell him he needs to sign off on the life saving operation before it's too late.
Kevin resists and begs them for a second opinion but they say there isn't enough time.
The doctors turn to his ex-wife Sally and daughter Sophie to help persuade Kevin, as they say: "I'm afraid amputation is the only way to save his life. I'm sorry but you need to talk to him. You need to make him understand."
Viewers see Kevin break down in tears in the emotional scenes and they rushed to Twitter to share their horror.
One wrote: "Corrie again. ! This is heart breaking for jack and Kevin poor Webster's"
One said: "Very sad situation in #Corrie but Jack needs the surgery, Kevin must agree!"
Another added: "wow Kevin signing off on jack losing a foot!"
Another upset fan wrote on Twitter: "In pieces watching Kevin, Sophie and Jack" as one said: "Kevin is breaking my heart!"
Kevin later submits to the operation and viewers seem Jack being wheeled into the operation room.
Fans praised actors Micael Le Vell and Brook Vincent, who play Kevin and Sophie, and said it was their best performance on the ITV soap.
One said: "Excellent performance from Kevin tonight"
Another agreed, adding: "I think I’ve just witnessed the best acting Michael Le Vell and Brooke Vincent have ever done on"
Earlier on in the episode viewers saw Sophie try to persuade Kevin to sue the NHS – but he refused.
People at home praised the show for making Kevin defend the NHS and tell his daughter to have "see sense".
She told Kevin, played by Michael Le Vell: "Jack needs something stronger, this stuff's not working."
Sophie hit back: "Not when professional people have messed up. We can't bury our heads dead, you're gonna need so much time off when he comes home."
Stunned at her remark, he replies: "Sue the NHS? The people who are trying to cure him? What's got into you. I'm having none of it."
