A father who lost his son in a tragic house fire has been able to hear his heartbeat in the chest of another man.
Jared Heisler’s 21-year-old son Matt was tragically killed in a house fire while studying at the University of North Dakota.
However 8 months after Matt’s passing, his family have been able to hear his heartbeat again, in the chest of Vietnam veteran Tom Meeks.. Because Matt signed up to be an organ donor when he was just 16-years-old.
His dad said: “He made the decision that if life ever slipped away from him, he would give life to someone else.”
Mr Meeks however, wasn’t the only beneficiary of Matt’s gesture. Over 60 people benefited from his donated organs which included both kidneys and his liver.
What a kind-hearted lad. This video hits right in the feels. RIP Matt.
